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 was 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. Now, I'm a cultural anthropologist: deeply curious about people and the relationships that order our lives. I still think that words and numbers need each other. My work allows me to follow that instinct, exploring the space between the particular and the general. This, for me, is where the magic happens.
