Interests: Anthropology, Education, Identity, Childhood

I am an anthropologist of education and have been working in Haiti since 2008. Areas of interest include childhood, emotion, identity and cultural psychology, especially under conditions of globalization and sociocultural inequality. I have special interests in how culture shapes ideologies of teaching and learning and in exploring the role of out-of-school learning in the lives of socially marginalized children and youth.
