He has studied fifteen languages (some extinct) and has interviewed and/or conversed in eight. Dr. Murray’s most extensive research experience has been in Haiti and the Dominican Republic where he planned and directed major agroforestry projects, analyzed land tenure patterns and explored agrarian, ritual, and healing systems.
