I am currently in graduate school studying anthropology. I am interested in underwater archaeology and the effects that the environment has on submerged sites
What heritage matters and why? How do we use it? Those are my central questions for my work in public archaeology and heritage. I’m interested in public outreach and involvement, official designations and public memory, and in the broader relevance of heritage, especially in the US.
I am interested in the Chinese diaspora in the Caribbean and Latin America. Currently I am writing my dissertation on Chinese influence in Afro-Cuban religion (Lukumi, La Regla de Ocha, Palo, Abakwa).
Since 2007 I have lived overseas, teaching full-time first in Lahore, Pakistan (2007-08), and since then at Zayed Univeristy in Abu Dhabi. My PhD is from Cornell (2004) and my interests include masculinity, Pakistan, Germany, military cultures, and social movements.
I teach social and cultural a the UNED in Spain, and my main area of research is kinship. I have worked on rural families, inheritance, and family farm reorganization. My main project now deals with late-forming families (people who become parents at 35 or older) and how they organize caregiving.
I am an applied archaeologist, who is passionate about public education & preservation of the past. My current research is collaborative with Tribal & local governments to study & preserve culturally significant sites in Michigan.
