I am a cultural anthropologist interested in the experience of growing old in different cultures.Like many medical anthropologists, I work at the overlaps between the mind/body, and the social and political worlds in which it is embedded.Aging is global and interdisciplinary; anthropology is key!
I am a medical anthropologist at the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London working in the NHS to develop and carry out assessments of health. I currently work with artists on projects about cancer and about teddy bears. I have run projects on CSI & Forensics, witchcraft, & schizophrenia.
I'm an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, in Honolulu. I study the mining industry in Papua New Guinea and the online video game World of Warcraft. I'm also an advocate for open access publishing and the founder of the popular anthropology blog savageminds.org
I am an applied visual anthropologist living in Seattle, Washington. I am interested in community-based research with migrant families. Together, we make short films called digital stories to share their experiences.
