Culture and religion have always fascinated me - both in terms of cultural and religious beliefs themselves (e.g., belief in a supernatural agent or in the efficacy of prayer) and the practices and rituals involved in many religious traditions (e.g., baptism or fire-walking). Having grown up in the Midwest part of the US (Iowa and Wisconsin), I have always been eager to get out and explore the world, learn other languages, and witness the everyday lives of people all over the globe.
Right now I am a PhD Candidate in Developmental Psychology at the University of California, Riverside. Though I also like to hang out with people in Cultural Evolutionary Psychology, Cultural Anthropology, and Philosophy.
