Eve’s research seeks to examine closely the healthcare theories and philosophies of science that underpin the creation and sustaining of health and healing systems. In examining these prevailing theories and philosophies, there is an opportunity to pare back and illuminate prevailing conceptual biases and assumptions that may plague even the most patient-centric care.
Eve’s academic background lies in international politics and anthropology, in addition to extensive graduate work in religion. She studied political philosophy while attending the L’Universite de Montpeller in southern France. She has traveled extensively, taught English in China, and spent time in North Africa among other destinations.
Her doctoral work used Complexity Science as a qualitative methodology to explore caregiver patterns of navigation in seeking out and selecting care for loved ones. In particular, her work sought to better understand and answer the localized narratives, needs, and perspectives required to view healthcare consumers as unique individuals.
Informed by her background in international politics and anthropology as well as her graduate work at the intersection of health, culture, and religion, Eve’s work is grounded in a critical perspective that relies heavily on theories of freedom, anarchy, and postmodernism.
Eve’s research interests lie in philosophy of science and theories of anarchy and individualism as ways to prime the brain for collaboration, innovation, and embracing complexity, and effective pedagogies for teaching and designing curricula around these areas.
