I received my academic training at the University of Chicago (A.B. 2010) and Duke University (M.A. 2015, Ph.D. 2018). In 2010-2011, I held a Fulbright Scholarship to conduct ethnographic research in Cameroon.

My dissertation research in Scotland has been generously funded by competitive grants from the Social Science Research Council, the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, and Duke University.

I am currently serving as a PhD Lab Fellow in the Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University, working to develop digital spaces for experimental ethnographic writing.

As an undergraduate, I studied French literature and Economics. I still think words and numbers need each other. As a cultural anthropologist who cares about people and relationships, I get to work in the middle space between the particular (textual) and the general (statistical). I think this is where the fun happens.
