ABOUT ABOUT

I am a psychological anthropologist and Southeast Asianist in the Department of Anthropology at Brigham Young University. My current research involves a comparative ethnography of Hmong communities in Thailand, the United States, and elsewhere in the diaspora. I work on issues of personhood and self, morality and ethics, health beliefs, ritual practice, social change, transnationalism, migration and diaspora. My emerging research area builds on my dissertation project to investigate the emergence of various messianic movements in the Hmong diaspora and understand the new religious dynamics in the Hmong diaspora more generally. You can find more information about me and my research at the links below, or at my departmental web page.
