Patricia Lopez

Assistant Professor

I am a health geographer focusing on the impact of U.S. foreign policy on the unfolding of international health and development projects in Haiti over the past 100 years. I am interested in exploring the racialized discourses that have undergirded US interventionism as well as the social and political responses to these interventions from within Haiti. At the heart of my research is an exploration of the role and accessibility of health citizenship.
