I am a faculty member in the Department of Pacific and Asian Studies at the University of Victoria.  My methods and perspective are grounded in anthropology but my research is interdisciplinary, straddling fields as diverse as sociology, science and technology studies, politics, religious studies, history, and Asian studies among other fields.  I teach courses on a variety of topics, including globalization, religion, development, liberalism and neoliberalism, sovereignty and the state, colonialism and post-colonialism, Islam, and Southeast Asia. I hold Ph.D. and M.A. degrees in anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley and a B.A. in anthropology from the University of Chicago.
