I am a cultural anthropologist. Research 1st at the Kwaio Cultural Centre in the Solomon Islands; worked on agricultural development and ecology in SE Asia (Thailand, Laos, Vietnam); went on to urban environmentalism in SE Chicago; now teach & research watershed rehab in SE Wisconsin
I am a physical anthropologist and bioarchaeologist specializing in the use of geometric morphometrics to analyse human morphological variation in both health and disease.
I use the archaeological record to better understand contemporary problems such as human vulnerability to climate change and the sustainability of social and environmental systems. The past contains completed “experiments” in sustainability, resilience, and collapse that we can learn from.
I curate the Anthropology Collections at Cornell University. I'm interested in visual & material culture, museums & collecting, & cultural interactions like colonialism and tourism. I've written extensively on the Powhatan Indians of Virginia & on the history of anthropology, & also on Puerto Rico.
Human Biologist with a keen interest in global health and wellbeing throughout the lifespan. Current areas of research: Nutritional dual-burden of under-and overweight. Intergenerational effects on health and disease.Working with Maya in Mexico
I am an archaeological anthropologist employed as a partner with Archaeological Services Inc., a heritage consulting firm located in Toronto, Canada. I am also affiliated with the anthropology departments at the University of Waterloo and Trent University.
