All the kids these days are talking about Karin Friederic, Co-Founder and Vice President of the Minga Foundation.  This professor made Anthropology cool again (seriously).

Karin has a long history of working at our first project site in Ecuador, and now visits at least once a year (with multiple Ecuadorian godchildren to show for it!). In 2011, Karin received her Ph.D. in Medical Anthropology from the University of Arizona and is now an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Wake Forest University in North Carolina.  A cultural anthropologist, Karin specializes in global health, human rights, development, gender, violence, and inequality. Her most recent research examines how ideas about human rights are changing both women and men’s experiences of and responses to intimate partner violence in rural Ecuador.
