Assistant Director CCWT
I am a linguistic anthropologist and anthropologist of education, qualitative research methodologist, and education researcher, with three major ongoing research projects:
(1) an ethnography of communication focused on the postcolonial modernization of the education and practice of an indigenous system of medicine in Kerala (south India) called Ayurveda;
(2) a video and discourse analysis of teacher-student and student peer-group interactions in US middle and high school STEM classrooms; and
(3) an ethnography of the experience of low-income, first-generation, and minotrized students on the campus of a public flagship university in the American Midwest.
