Personal Statement

Kevin Bardosh (PhD, Edinburgh) is Research Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Emerging Pathogens at the University of Florida. His work is grounded in a biosocial approach to health problems, with a particular interest in human-animal-ecosystem relations, science and technology, governance and citizen engagement. Kevin has conducted formative and operational research in a dozen countries in Africa, Asia and the Americas, working in collaboration with scientists, civil society and Ministries of Health and Agriculture. A major goal of his work is to use social science knowledge – ethnography, qualitative research and survey data – to improve health policy and practice. Kevin currently has funding from the Gates Foundation to develop a community-based mosquito control initiative in northern Haiti – Polisy Kont Moustik – to assist with the elimination of lymphatic filariasis and malaria, and the control of Zika and other arboviruses. He also holds a Society and Ethics Fellowship from the Wellcome Trust (2016-2020) to explore the biopolitics of pandemic preparedness, including a focus on the current Global Zika Response in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Personal Statement

My research explores human-environment interactions through a transdisciplinary approach encompassing environmental and economic anthropology, political ecology, institutional analysis, and participatory approaches. For the most part, I focus on the Latin American experience, including community-based forest and water management, coffee production and value chains, interactions between people and protected areas, governance of common-pool resources, adaptation to climate change, sustainability, globalization, and belief systems.
