My interest is in applied anthropology in a variety of scenarios, including rural development program evaluation, cross-cultural social media use, public health research, social network formation, and local food system dynamics. I am eclectic methodologically, employing both qual and quant methods.
I am a cultural anthropologist with over 25 years fieldwork experience in rural Haiti. My research initially focused on land tenure and agroforestry, and now includes Haitian émigrés in the U.S. and Canada. I am a Professor of Anthropology at a Community College in N.J.
I'm a biological anthropologist, focusing on non-human primate behavior (lemurs), ecology, and hormones. My work is noninvasive, and investigates the behavioral and physiological changes that species undergo in response to environmental changes. I'm interested in the evolution of shared infant care.
EJ Sobo specializes in health, illness, and medicine across cultures. She has worked in both academia and healthcare proper. Dr. Sobo's current core project examines how adults' ethnomedical understandings about healthy child development affect strategies and standards for K-12 education.
I am an applied archaeologist working for the Florida Public Archaeology Network in St. Augustine, Florida. Every day I get to help educate the public on the state's buried past, assist local governments, and assist the state's Division of Historical Resources.
I am a biological anthropologist, occassional biohistorian, and accidental egyptologist. I am interested in ancient health and disease, trauma, and human sacrifice, but not necessarily in that order. The MA in Classical Studies that I obtained along the way has prepared me for none of this.
