Genevieve is a predoctoral graduate student at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, studying Cultural and Medical Anthropology. She obtained a B.S. in Medical Anthropology from the Ohio State University, where her senior thesis was about the shifting research trends on Turkish migrants living in Germany and the effect on physical and mental health and well-being. After minoring in German and studying abroad in Salzburg for a short time, she has been interested in returning to a German-speaking
country for research. Her interests for her future dissertation fieldwork are broadly about migration to Germany, possibly, climate and environmental migration, identity formation, and the moral economy of humanitarianism in Germany. As a summer intern at Social Science Works, she is interested in learning about the experience of migration for refugees and how it influences their identity and sense of belonging.
