Research Interests

Human-Animal Relations, Sub-Arctic Alaska, Water-Land Boundary

Current Research

The focus of my research is on relations between (Yup’ ik) people, salmon and other animals along the Kuskokwim River in Southwest Alaska. I am especially interested in practices that cultivate relations between people and salmon, including those that make, perpetuate, or hinder salmon’s significance as a valuable animal.
