Timothy Hare, Anthropology Professor in the Department of Sociology, Social Work, & Criminology at Morehead State University, works as a regional analyst and divides his time between the spatial analysis of social, economic, and health factors across central Appalachia, and the study of regional socioeconomic transformations in ancient Mesoamerican societies. He combines experience as an economic anthropologist, skills in digital mapping (geographical information systems), and techniques of regional analysis to study the interaction among factors that influence development disparities.
