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.
I've been teaching cultural and physical anthropology in a local community college for over 12 years and enjoy every day of my job. I'm a past president of The Society for Anthropology in Community Colleges. My current research interest is in food and culture.
I am a graduate student of sociocultural anthropology at the University of California, San Diego. I study the religion of a people living in the Ecuadorian Amazon. Ultimately, my goal is to be a professor of anthropology. I enjoy the outdoors, reading, and spending time with family.
My primary research is among linguistic minorities in Calabria, South Italy. Topics include minority politics, violence (Mafia), civil society, relatedness and humanitarianism. I also work on Pontian dance and nationalism in northern Greece
I am a medical anthropologist, interested in factors that determine health, disease, illness, and health care delivery. My writing deals with applied anthropology, health inequality, political violence, and the Holocaust. My recent book is A Polish Doctor in the Nazi Camps (U of Okla Press 2014).
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.
