Other information
Chris is a PhD candidate in sociocultural anthropology and an
instructor in the Peace and Conflict Studies Program at the University
of Colorado at Boulder. His interest in the anthropology of law,
politics, and biotechnology emerged as an undergraduate researcher at
the University of Regensburg looking at the social effects of the
German state’s response to the outbreak of Mad Cow disease in Bavaria.
As an MA student, he conducted multi-sited research in the offices of
German and Tanzanian ministries, development corporations, and
European NGOs involved in health-sector reform in Tanzania. He
continues to find North-South (especially European-African)
development cooperation to be an exciting window into the governance
of health technologies. Now a Social Science Research Council and
National Science Foundation fellow, his current dissertation research
concerns inequality and legal contestation over pharmaceutical
bioprospecting for South African genetic resources for drug
development and sales.
