My speciality is historical anthropology of the Andes; my interest areas include the Inkas; khipus and ancient writing systems; indigenous Andean peoples in the Spanish colonial period; 19th can 20th century Andean ethnography; and ethnopoetics.  I am currently finishing a book on the ethnohistory of the  Chanka people of Peru; this work is the product of a five year collaboration with archaeologist Dr. Brian S. Bauer (University of Illinois at Chicago) funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
