I work on two different linguistic anthropology research themes. In political discourse, I see how politicians, news media, and citizens interact through language. At the same time, I analyze identity and language learning-how learning new languages makes people think differently about who they are.
Trained as an applied, medical anthropologist. I work on nutrition and food insecurity issues in Sarawak, Malaysia and user experience issues for UA Libraries here in Alabama. All of my work focuses on cognitive and visual methods.
I am a biological anthropologist. I research the evolution of bipedality in our human ancestors, focusing on the comparative anatomy of the hip bones to answer the question: what factors shape the human pelvis? I also do paleoanthropological fieldwork in East and South Africa.
I am a retired anthropology educator and I am certified to teach anthropology in secondary schools by the State of Michigan. I taught anthropology and archaeology at the high school level and I have also taught Native American Studies at an urban tribal education center.
