I'm a bio-cultural anthropologist, and currently employed as a postdoc at Arizona State University Department of Psychology.
My Ph.D. work (supervised by Lee Cronk, Rutgers University) was on social learning mechanisms needed to produce complex material culture.
I just submitted a grant proposal that would enable me to spend some additional time in eastern Kentucky over the next few years. Fingers crossed!
I'm wrapping up an amazing field season in Eastern Kentucky in just a few weeks. I'm sad to say goodbye to the wonderful people and new friends I've made here, but am looking forward to sharing some of what I've learned about this special place with friends and colleagues.
I'm looking forward to spending the summer in southeast Kentucky, where I'll be talking to local people about sharing and helping as part of the Human Generosity Project -- humangenerosity.org
