Aline Gubrium is an Associate Professor of Public Health (Community Health Education) and a medical anthropologist at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA.

From early research with African-American women living in a southern rural community, to work with women using Depo-Provera contraception, and more recent projects working with Latino/a youth to address barriers to sexual communication and sexuality education, GubriumAEs research focus has been on how research participants view their sexual and reproductive health experiences, particularly how they make sense of, respond to, and confront the many in?uences that shape their sexuality. For the past six years Gubrium has conducted ethnographic ?eldwork at an alternative school for pregnant and parenting young women to explore studentsAE embodied perspectives on contraception, mothering, and sexuality. Gubrium is the author of Participatory Visual and Digital Methods (2013, with Krista Harper).
