Research Interests

My major areas of study include sociocultural anthropology (economics, environment, development), applied anthropology, visual anthropology, material culture (particularly pottery) and indigenous rights with a focus on Latin America, particularly Honduras.

My dissertation research focuses on the impacts of socioeconomic change on indigenous tradition, particularly craft production, household decision-making, market access, gender roles, and environment within indigenous Lenca communities across western Honduras. Through a mixed methods approach, I explore how changing sociopolitical and environmental conditions impact the way indigenous groups perceive their traditional livelihoods and roles and how Lenca craft producers creatively adapt in the face of development to connect with a complex and changing national market.

I believe in linking research to action, and my goal is to create data, publications, and other research results that are accessible and applicable beyond academia, potentially informing policy-making and development practice in the future.
