As a teacher and a scholar, Dr. Lebrato is fundamentally concerned with constructing more horizontal forms of exchange between the discipline of anthropology, the groups and networks of people with whom we work, and our students. 

He has published scholarly articles on how students and faculty at Mexican intercultural universities grapple with different forms of knowledge (Revista Mexicana de Investigación Educativa, Mexican Journal of Educational Research, 2016) and on designing collaborative models based on local epistemologies (Collaborative Anthropologies, 2018). His work has been supported by the Fulbright Program and has received awards for human rights research from Indiana University and the University of Chicago and from the Society for Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology for public and applied anthropology.
