Caleb Everett is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Miami, where he has taught since obtaining his PhD from Rice University in 2007. He is an anthropological linguist whose research focuses on language, thought, and culture.

Caleb has published over two dozen articles in linguistics, anthropology, and cognitive science. His 2013 book, entitled Linguistic Relativity: Evidence Across Languages and Cognitive Domains, surveys the ways in which linguistic differences impact how people think. His recent work also addresses geographically influenced patterns in the sounds of human languages. He has conducted extensive fieldwork in Brazil and has studied in or visited many other countries. Caleb participated in two previous SAS voyages (F92 and F95) as a faculty dependent. He obtained his bachelor’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh.
