I am currently a graduate student in the Anthropology Department at Northern Arizona University. My primary focus of study is Linguistic Anthropology, specifically literacy as a social practice. My thesis research involves the study of conversations that occur in bathroom stall through graffiti.
I am an archaeologist at the Oklahoma Archeological Survey, University of Oklahoma. I study the Native American cultures of the Southeastern and Midwestern United States from about AD 1000-1600 that are often called "Mississippian". I specialize in ceramics and archaeological remote sensing.
I recently graduated from NAU with my Master's in Linguistic Anthropology. I now work for a research project housed by UNC Chapel Hill which investigates the local health disparity of HIV/AIDS in Eastern North Carolina. I am most passionate about research in language use and mental health.
I study how people use new media to accomplish their everyday tasks. I have written a lot about how people use new media to breakup with each other. I am now studying the role new media plays when people are trying to get hired (or hire people) and when people are fired.
I work with self-govt.&self-managed groups. Juntos estudiamos qué aprendemos y cómo para llevar adelante nuestros proyectos auto-gestionados usando la investigación-acción participativa. I use participatory action-research as an approach.
I am an applied cultural anthropologist. While I am a student and big fan of the history of anthropological theory, I have found myself in an awesome position working and researching in the field of heritage preservation in the incredibly wonderful islands of the Federated States of Micronesia.
