As a cultural anthropologist, I explore questions of ecology, international migration, economic development, and social justice. 

My interest in the lives of rural people as they become swept into global flows has led me to engage with students and scholars across disciplines who address environmental conservation, the expansion of industrialized agriculture, and international migration. At North Carolina State University, I teach in the Anthropology and International Studies programs and am affiliated faculty with the Genetic Engineering and Society Center, the SE Climate Science Center, and the Global Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WaSH) Cluster.
