I am an undergraduate. One project I am engaged in includes lithic
production and experimental archaeology the study is not yet published.
My primary interest in anthro, however, is social anthropology. I
speak Spanish and some Tagalog (filipino), and I would enjoy discussing
most aspects of linguistics.

I would like to do field work in South or Central America or in
Southeast Asia. I have done projects that included field work in the
gay community in Southern California. I am interested in precesses
involved in group member vs. non group member identification.
