My work centers on language documentation, revalorization, and revitalization with an areal commitment to Peruvian Amazonia. I completed my PhD in (Linguistic) Anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin in 2010. I have been doing research and carrying out integrated humanitarian work and community service projects in Peruvian Amazonia since 1995. Thus far, I have worked with Nanti, Matsigenka, Iquito, Máíjuna, Sápara, Andoa/Katsakáti, Dekyunawa/Muniche, Omagua, and Aʔɨwa/Vacacocha people on language documentation and/or revitalization. In 1996, I co-founded Cabeceras Aid Project with Lev Michael to facilitate the integration of research and community service projects. For more information, please visit my Current Projects page.
