- Anthropology Assistant Professor
I am a cultural anthropologist whose area of interest is contemporary Cuban history and culture. Since the summer of 2000, I have conducted ethnographic research on various aspects of Cuban society including resource distribution, social networks, and socialist societies in transition.
My current research involves a detailed analysis of resource distribution and social networks. I analyze how people make ends meet despite scarcity of goods, restrictions on trade and business, along with the importance of social relations to guarantee the allocation of goods and services.
