Profile

My interests lie at the intersections of anthropology and psychology, and include psychological anthropology, cultural psychotherapy, critical psychoanalysis, and trauma. My early research explored the dynamics of intercultural psychological treatments; as a practicing psychotherapist, I have sought to bring ethnographic inquiry into a dialogue with clinical practice. My more recent work addresses individual and collective trauma in the wake of 9/11, and has led me to examine the psychological and social consequences of disasters and mass violence.
