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 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.
