About

I am an historical anthropologist, my research encompasses multiple methodologies; primarily archaeological, ethnographic (working with decedent communities), and historical. My fieldwork takes me to archaeological sites in the Caribbean island nation of Antigua & Barbuda, and archival sites in the United Kingdom. My decades of museum work at the American Museum of Natural History, international science/history museums, and regional children's museums,  informs my teaching in the Critical Museum Studies Program.
