Research Fields I have conducted anthropological field research in cacao farming villages in southern Ghana since 2005. I was in pursuit of research concerning how people responded to diseases from the perspective of medical anthropology. However, my recent interests lie in redistribution practices at parties such as weddings and funerals.
