I carried out field work among the hunter-gatherer people in South India, about whom I subsequently published a book. I have published books on the anthropology of religion, conceptions of the self and on herbalism in Malawi. In addition I have also written numerous articles on ethnobotany, ethnozoology, classification, conceptions of the individual, religion, ritual and symbolism, hunter-gatherer societies, herbalism and fungi. I have also carried out fieldwork on a number of occasions in Malawi, most recently researching human-insect interactions.
