My research interest is discovering how humans interpret their environment and how these interpretations influence their behavior both with the environment and with others in their social group. I have focused on agricultural development and conservation in Belize, Madagascar, and the US.
Starting from 1997, I have conducted recurrent ethnographic fieldwork in Acholiland, northern Uganda, with a focus on young adults living in the immediate shadows of civil war, with the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) and other groups fighting the Ugandan government.
I am a bioarchaeologist studying health and their social identities. In particular, I am interested in the ancient Southwest and the Historical US West. At present, I'm studying the Overland Trail and Westward Expansion to understand the history, and biological consequences, of racism and inequality
I am a medical anthropologist at UTSW Medical Center. I'm working on a study looking at depression in patients with chronic kidney disease. Since I have been working with these, I am very interested in neuroanthropology. I also teach general and cultural anthropology at Collin College.
I study organic food networks in Western Sicily and Palermo, integrating the moral economy and risk modernity approaches. I am interested in defining dimensions of social and ecological sustainability through the use of anthropological theory.
