Human behavioral and social ecology, ethnobiology, medical & psychological anthropology, collaborative ethnographic science, cross-cultural comparison, Caribbean, Africa, field and analytical methods. My main focus is on the role of environmental risk in shaping human development, livelihood, reproduction, household relations, and cultural diversity. I have an active program of cross-cultural comparative research. I helped develop a collaborative research project concerning environmental risk and resilience among small-scale farmers in Southwest Ethiopia. I am also involved in collaborative research concerning the evolution and transmission of antimicrobial resistance among agro-pastoralists in Tanzania.
