On this page, you will find a list of multimedia content featuring my work, such as recorded lectures and audio/podcasts from press interviews. As part of my ethic and politic to socialize my research and communicate it to the public, I also often post research, fieldwork, conference, and teaching updates on social media. Locate my updates on the go here: bloggingtweeting, snapchatting.
