I conducted research in Bolivia on how socialization experiences shape infants’ expectations for contingent social feedback. Women from the Quechua and Aymara communities of Bolivia wear their babies in beautiful hand-woven “aguayos” on their backs throughout most of the day, making this a particularly interesting context to study infant-caregiver interaction. In Bolivia, I worked as a volunteer with local health clinics outside of the city of Cochabamba, arranged with help from the awesome organization Sustainable Bolivia.
