I have conducted ethnographic research in American Indian communities, in American institutions undergoing rapid technological, and in post-soviet Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and China. I have published widely in American and international academic journals and books. My current research focuses on language, identity and globalization in post-soviet countries.
