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.
