It takes a large, talented, dedicated team to do what we do. Our Culture, Health, and Environment Lab (CHELab) on the Tempe campus is where we come together to push forward an array of collaborative research projects.
The core CHELab team includes: Alexandra Brewis, Amber Wutich, Cindi SturtzSreetharan, and Alissa Ruth. We embrace collaboration, work efficiently, hold each other to the highest standards, innovate our approaches constantly, and value what everyone brings to the table. We welcome scholars, postdocs, and students from any field to get involved in any of our ongoing projects. Contact any of us to find our how.
The CHELab is also all about student training in rigorous, cutting-edge ethnographic research methods. Our PhD students become experts, and end up with great jobs because of it. Up to 30 undergraduates join the lab during semesters as research apprentices, gaining data management and analysis skills. Many more work with us in the field or in practicum courses learning about social science data collection by doing.
