Research Interests

I am a historical anthropologist and environmental historian working in the Arctic. My research interests comprise the comparative histories of anthropological concepts and fieldworking (with a focus on Arctic anthropology); historical anthropology, ethnohistory, indigenous autobiographies and microhistories; environmental history and nature conservation; indigenous art, museum studies and museum ethnography; indigenous religious revitalization. The geographical areas covered by my present research are the Russian Arctic where I work with Samoyedic groups such as Nenets, Enets, Nganasans, and Selkups, and Siberia where I work with Altaians, Shors, Evenki, and Orochons.
