Welcome to my faculty directory page! I've been teaching anthropology at Columbia College since 2017. Anthropology is an ideal subject for those interested in learning and thinking more about the past, present, and future of humankind. My own research interests include: the management, ownership, and protection of cultural heritage, the political uses of the past, and the anthropology of heritage.
Courses taught (varies by semester):
Anthropology 1, Biological Anthropology (Fall 2017 - Spring 2020)
Anthropology 2, Cultural Anthropology (Spring 2019 & 2020)
Anthropology 10, Archaeology (Spring 2018)
Open-access textbook for Anthropology 2, Cultural Anthropology: Perspectives: An Open Invitation to Cultural Anthropology (second edition)
