Technology and Identity, Technological Change and Social Development; Visual Communication, Knowledge/Belief, and Identities
A south Florida native, I began my undergraduate studies at New College of Florida, and completed my BA in Anthropology at the University of South Florida. My specialization was in Anthropological Archaeology, and my undergraduate thesis work was centered around gender and nature iconography in ancient Egypt. I received my MA in Anthropology from Hunter College, during which time I completed an internship at the American Museum of Natural History and an MA thesis on Technology, Iconography, and Visual Communication at Teotihuacan. After earning my MA degree, I excavated in Lemba, Cyprus with the University of Edinburgh, and then returned to south Florida to pursue a doctorate studying identity, and technology and social development in the modern era. Currently, my research interests include the study of the interaction between technological change and social and personal identity, and the development of niche communities and personal identities around technological media.
