What does make me an anthropologist? My studies ? My diplomas? I think it's more than that. Something coming with a particular way of looking, of thinking. My studies take the Chinese margins as their object. More precisely the Hmong minority and its identity negotiations on the social network QQ.
I'm an environmental anthropologist, currently studying diverse knowledges about changing climate and water in the Sekhukune district of South Africa. Completed projects include water governance at a bulk water provider, and at a local water provider in Johannesburg.
A cultural, applied, public policy anthropologist, I focus on nonverbal communication and its context in the arts, education, health, religion, politics, and the law. I have served as an expert court witness in First, Fifth, Fourteenth Amendment, labor relations, and tax cases nationwide since 1995
