Nicole Angotti

Assistant Professor Department of Sociology

Nicole Angotti is Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Assistant Director of AU’s Center on Health, Risk and Society (CHRS). Her research centers on three areas: 1) the differential incorporation of global health norms, policies and programs in local contexts; 2) HIV/AIDS, aging and rural livelihoods; and 3) methodological issues and innovations in field-based research. Some of her research projects include how Western biomedical interventions intersect with social life in rural Malawi, HIV risk across the life course in rural South Africa, and the criminalization of same-sex sexualities in African countries. Her most recent work has been published in Social Science and Medicine, Qualitative Research, and Population and Development Review. Before joining AU, Angotti was a Hewlett Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow with the African Population Studies Research and Training Program at the University of Colorado-Boulder and the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa.
