Economic Anthropologist. Research on migrant households and women's work in origin communities (Oaxaca, Mexico), as well as women's work and worker safety in destination communities (Cincinnati, Atlanta).
I research the cultures of video games, game designers, American militarism, and how labor plays into all of these things. I am writing a book on the US Army's official video game, America's Army, and am hoping to begin new research on digital game labor and the interactive entertainment industry.
I am currently working on my masters degree at the University of West Florida specializing in historic archaeology and public education.
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.
As a sociocultural anthropologist, I plan to assess media as spaces of contention and resistance in (re)constructing and (re)presenting the 2010-2011 University of Puerto Rico student strikes, as well as, the ways in which they are currently perceived by the University community.
I teach and do research on the social and cultural patterning of learning and language development in communities whose members use multiple languages and participate in multiple learning traditions. I study informal science learning and Muslim children's religious and secular schooling experiences.
