Areas of Expertise
Ecological, medical, and applied anthropology; national parks/protected areas; ethnoecology/ethnobotany
My research interests include ethnoecology, natural resource anthropology, and ethnomedicine. I have extensive fieldwork experience in northern Ontario, central Mississippi, and the American Southwest. I have served as a research consultant to various indigenous and governmental agencies. A central theme in my research is developing community-based methodologies to investigate resource management practices of resident populations in conservation areas. I have articles published in Ethnohistory, J. of Family Relations, Central Issues in Anthropology, Cultural Survival Quarterly, and Economic Botany.
