I am a development anthropologist graduated in Development Studies at Macquarie University in Australia, and also studied in Italy and China. I am currently working for the United Nations World Food Programme in West Africa, monitoring results and impact of food security and nutrition programmes.
I'm an associate professor of anthropology at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, in Honolulu. I study the mining industry in Papua New Guinea and the online video game World of Warcraft. I'm also an advocate for open access publishing and the founder of the popular anthropology blog savageminds.org
I am a medical anthropologist investigating how culture and states of consciousness shape and influence human health. From healing rituals in West and East Africa to meditation and alternative medicine in the United States, I seek to understand holistic approaches to health and well-being.
I am an archaeological anthropologist working as the staff archaeologist for a non-profit public archaeology program in Morganton, North Carolina. I am passionate about early European encounters with Native American groups in North America, specifically in what is now the southeastern United States.
