I received my PhD  from the University of Toronto in Physical Anthropology.  The courses that I teach include Medical, Applied,  and Ecological Anthropology as well as Human Evolution, Primatology, Physical Anthropology Lab, and Culture, Sex and Gender.  I just completed  a 4-year NIH-funded study on women’s  menstrual cycle, sexuality, and well being and another  on menopausal women on the Big Island. My previous research includes HIV/AIDS in Thailand, Canada, and Hawaiʻi. As of Spring 2010, I am currently the department chair of Anthropology.
