Research: 

Like anthropology, my research is multifaceted. I explore broad anthropological questions derived from theory that use a variety of means including library, museum, and field research. Primary among my questions is how evolutionary theory can be integrated with praxis theory (agency-based approaches) to better understand human behavior, especially symbolic and religious behavior.
