BA. Harvard University, History, 2003 Mst. Oxford University, Social Anthropology, 2008.

My dissertation focuses on the experiences of guest workers in the United States who perform reforestation work in the United States.  I try to find the connections between precarious labor, affect, and occupational health. I am also interested in the potential of visual anthropology as an alternative form of academic knowledge transmission, and my dissertation work will have a significant visual component.

Research Interests:
