My name is Emmanuel Cohen, I am a researcher specialised in biocultural anthropology. I work on the representations of the body and its biocultural adaptation and evolution within the urbanisation process. I especially focus on three dimensions of this global transition undergoing in African populations : the demographic, nutritional and epidemiological transitions. They conjointly affect the body within a biocultural perspective (e.g. development of obesity and eating disorders), that my expertise can identify and assess to improve the wellbeing of these populations.
