at Ephesus, Turkey
I am a professor of sociology who studies issues of well-being. This has included research on the lived experiences of people with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), farmers' growing practices, and people's consumption of complementary and alternative medicine. I am currently studying the growth of pole dancing and aerial arts, from strip club to leisure activities.
Check out some of these projects and learn more about some of the people I interviewed. You can also meet Pinky, who is teaching me to become a better person.
