Aidan Seale-Feldman is an Assistant Professor of Medical Anthropology at the University of Notre Dame where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on health and culture, biopolitics, psychic life, and planetary health.

Her work has been published in Cultural Anthropology, Ethos, and HIMALAYA: The Journal of the Association for Nepal and Himalayan Studies, South Asia: Journal of South Asian Studies, as well as in public venues such as Somatosphere, The Record Nepal, and Cultural Anthropology online. Dr. Seale-Feldman received her M.A. and Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of California, Los Angeles and was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Bioethics at the University of Virginia.
