I am a cultural medical anthropologist with an interest in sexual and reproductive health. My goals are to combine the agenda of public health with the tools and insights of anthropology to develop strategies for improving reproductive and sexual health outcomes of various communities.
I am a bioarchaeologist focused on the heath consequences of interactions between groups. Whether it be the impact of trade on different groups or the social role of violence, bioarchaeology has the unique potential to uncover patterns in how people interact with each other.
I am an archaeological anthropologist working as the staff archaeologist for a non-profit public archaeology program in Morganton, North Carolina. I am passionate about early European encounters with Native American groups in North America, specifically in what is now the southeastern United States.
I am an applied cultural anthropologist, on brief hiatus from my dissertation research while I complete a Fulbright placement within the government of Haiti, where I work with the governmental unit that coordinates the activities of NGOs operating throughout the country.
