Social Anthropology + Webdesign

I am a Social Anthropologist who is actually trained to be a Webdesigner with skills in HTML5, CSS3. I am planning to be skilled in UX as well and have basic skills in Prototyping (Sketch). As Social Anthropologist - "the Science of Men" - as the famous french anthropologist Levi-Strauss calls it, I am trained in Fieldwork Methodology and analytical thinking with a human centered approach. My main field of scientific work is about state borders in times of Globalization. I conducted fieldwork at the U.S.-Mexican Border in the Border Town of Tijuana. In 2015, my book entitled "The Celebrated Line" was published. This publication is my doctoral dissertation and Its subject is the border town of Tijuana and its border communities dealing with the border situation.
