Dana Fennell, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology and Sociology

Much of my research focuses on health-related topics, but I have published on a variety of issues. I have ongoing research projects on Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and silence and religion. I am open to helping students further their own research agendas in sociology, or letting them get their feet wet working with me on one of my own projects. I have experience with both qualitative and quantitative methods.
