Statement of interest: My research deals with how indigenous peoples name, understand, and harness events and effects associated to environmental causes and, more specifically, climate change. In particular, I study practices traditionally labeled as "ritual" and how they incorporate, deploy and make sense of environmental concerns.

Geographical/topical area of interest: Mexico, Central America, Latin America
