Sunil Khanna (PhD in Anthropology, Syracuse, 1995 & Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology and Human Genetics, University of Delhi, 1988) is a medical anthropologist interested in examining the complex interrelations of biology, culture, gender, ethnicity, and health in South Asia and the US. He uses diverse yet complementary field techniques such as ethnographic research and qualitative methods, microdemographic survey, and nutritional anthropometry in his research studies. His most recent research project in India addresses perhaps one of the most contentious and sensitive transnational issues, namely, the availability and use of new reproductive technology for the purpose of prenatal sex determination and practices of sex selection in urbanizing north India. You can read more about his research in his book Fetal/Fatal Knowledge: New Reproductive Technologies and Family-Building Strategies in India (Cengage/Wadsworth, 2009).
