I am a medical anthropologist at Western Washington University and use mixed-methods research to examine the intersections of identity and chronic disease. My current research examines the history of anthropology with a focus on disciplinary teaching and citation trends, fieldwork risk and safety, and collaborative research methodologies for health and social science fields. In addition, I have training in team science, inter/transdisciplinary research, comparative effectiveness research (CER) for health and health policy, and community based participatory research (CBPR) with organizations and indigenous peoples.
