Although my area of specialty is in sociocultural anthropology, my research focuses on issues closely linked to medical and psychological anthropology. I study the way in which mental illness is understood and produced by recipients and providers of care in psychiatric settings in Yucatan, Mexico.
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.
I am a cultural anthropologist who studies gender and migration. I’ve conducted research with Somali refugees in Johannesburg, South Africa and Columbus, Ohio.
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 am a medical anthropologist at the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London working in the NHS to develop and carry out assessments of health. I currently work with artists on projects about cancer and about teddy bears. I have run projects on CSI & Forensics, witchcraft, & schizophrenia.
I am an archaeologist studying the prehistory of Iroquoian populations from Northeastern North America. I am also a specialist in the analysis of animal bones and bone tools found on archaeological sites. I am now trying to combine my professional formation with my passion for photography.
