About Me

I am many things, but let’s focus on me being a social/cultural anthropologist.

I was trained at the universities of Mainz, where I got my MA, and Canterbury (UK). Later, I received my PhD from the Martin Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg. Yes, my degree is from the same school that Hamlet went to.

At various times, I’ve been employed at HE institutions in Mainz, Bielefeld, Halle-Wittenberg, and Konstanz. See my CV for all the detail.

I am the world’s leading academic specialist on the Kara (South Omo, Ethiopia).

Additionally, I have done a good deal of research on the politics of cultural heritage in Myanmar.

I greatly enjoy teaching.

I have had a distributed social media presence for the longest time; this website is intended to serve as a hub.
