Research Interests
Research interests: Sociology, Anthropology, and Human Ecology of Natural and Subsistence Resource Use and Management, with special emphasis on Ethnobiology and Ethnobotany, Food and Medicinal Systems, Biocultural Diversity Studies, Cultural Studies, Migrant and Refugee Studies, Pastoral Systems, Ethnoveterinary Medicine and Human-Animal Relationships, and Social-Ecological Systems. <br /><br /><br /><br />My interests include human-animal relationships, especially pastoralism and the ways in which pastoralists cope with social and environmental change across the globe. I am particularly interested in changes in pastoral social-ecological systems under different social and ecological pressures, and in the material and cultural roles of livestock among pastoral populations.
