My research interests focus on poverty, livelihood practices, and welfare provision in rural Appalachia and Indonesia. I have two recently published books on these topics:
- Power, Change, and Gender Relations in Rural Java: A Tale of Two Villages authored with Siti Kusujiarti
- Economic Restructuring and Family-Well-Being in Rural America , edited with Kristin Smith.
I seek ways to communicate my research and scholarship in a variety of public arenas, ranging from community groups to policy makers with the goal of providing knowledge for informed social policy, advocacy, and decision-making.
