Ph.D., Anthropology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

I am a cultural anthropologist with extensive fieldwork experience in Ecuador. My research has focused on ritual, shamanism, ethnohistory, sacred geography, and ethnogenesis.

I enjoy teaching in an interdisciplinary setting and introducing students from a variety of backgrounds to the approaches of anthropology. I find it especially rewarding to see students carry out their thesis research, and present the culmination of that research at the annual research symposium.
