I am currently continuing my research on the culture of a folk Catholicism tradition of milagres, mimetic votive offerings in Northeast Brazil and preparing a manuscript for submission in the Fall of 2011. Two years ago I began a relationship with The Himalayan health Exchange, a non-governmental health service program. In Summer of 2012 and 2013 we hope to begin an applied human ecology program of research the Himalayan region of India.
