Research Interests

Nadine's work focuses on the intersections of sexuality, illness, and wellbeing, and the interplay between biomedicine and alternative forms of addressing illness and reproductive health issues, particularly in Muslim communities. She is especially interested in the global politics of population and disease control and in the interrelationships between large-scale global health interventions and local realities in East Africa.
