Assistant Professor of Anthropology

Department of Sociology and Anthropology

UT El Paso

My mission is to cultivate meaningful personal relationships and transformative learning experiences to counteract indifference and to motivate students to leave their comfort zones and take risks by seeking new adventures abroad and in their own communities. I do this through my Pedagogy of Engagement, teaching students to use anthropological theories and methods to learn about others and about themselves
