I'm an anthropologist and sociocultural linguist with specialities in multi-country ethnography, inequality, intercultural communication, and stakeholder engagement.
Using ethnography and critical discourse analysis, I join with people in their homes, and places of work and learning to understand who they are and what matters to them. I enjoy connecting with diverse audiences, and I'm a hands-on researcher and self-reflexive communicator.
My 2019 forthcoming book is Zombies Speak Swahili: Race, Horror, and Sci-Fi from Mexico to Tanzania and Get Out.
I'm also Lead Editor of the 2019 anthology Embodied Difference: Divergent Bodies in Public Discourse.
#LanguageStory is a video series and blog I created to discuss people-centered perspectives on communication, intercultural learning, and the impact of anthropological research.
