Azza Ahmed Abdel Aziz holds a Ph. D in Social Anthropology, with a special focus on Medical Anthropology, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. Her research focuses on cultural understandings of health and well-being, which largely feature an exploration of the interface between such understandings and biomedical configurations of health. She has in-depth experience working on these issues among individuals and groups whose lives have been subject to experiences of movement/migration in different forms. She equally focuses on how the socio-political impinges on constructions of identity and how these elements give life to diverse socio-cultural manifestations in multiple domains of social life.
