I am an Anthropologist by training, or as some would say a Philosopher with data. I approach the world, and my work, through the lenses of this science. I finished my Ph.D. at UC Irvine, in 2004, and I have been active in both public and private domains in various capacities, while continuing to teach in different university settings, both online and in class.
My experience spans 6 different countries on three continents in which I lived and worked in the past 23 years, since I left my native Romania.
My research, writing, and practice is centred on understanding of human actions in context, and in developing strategies of change based on this - where context is understood to be the result of dynamic interactions between culture, technology, economy, religion, gender and sexuality, and institutional practices.
