Amanda Hunter

Former Staff Writer


Discipline: Medical Anthropology

Research Interests: I’m currently looking at how birth experiences affect the lives of women in urban Brazil. My general interests are in issues around childbirth including birth trauma, women's agency and the working conditions of healthcare professionals providing maternity care.

If you were a box of cereal what would you be and why: Crunchy granola... See the Birkenstocks.

What did you want to be when you grew up: I wanted to be a chemist or a marine biologist. But, hey, why not study a social science instead? Making money is overrated...

Where are you right now: At the university "working" on my dissertation.

Tell us something about another staff writer: If Bex Thompson decided to leave academia, she could totally cash in on making a TV show based on her daily trials and tribulations .
