Biographical Info

Kristen Ogilvie is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Alaska, Anchorage. For many years, she worked as a researcher with the Alaska Office of the Pacific Institute for Research & Evaluation (PIRE).  She has managed three National Institutes of Health-funded studies in Alaska focused on substance misuse and risky behavior prevention and also served as a qualitative co-investigator in this research. Her primary interest is engaging in a critical dialogue with the expanding public health discourse on health disparities and social determinants of health in relation to substance misuse. Much of her work has sought to develop and test community-based approaches to the prevention of substance misuse, including inhalants and over-the-counter and prescription drugs, in rural Alaska. Recently, she has been examining the history, effectiveness, and unintended consequences of community local options restrictions on alcohol in Alaska. Raised in rural Arizona, she earned her M.A. and Ph.D. in Anthropology from Arizona State University. Email:
