I am a first year PhD student in the Anthropology Department at Rice University. I am currently interested in the production of conservation regimes, violent multi-species entanglement, and conceptualizations of extinction that inform actors working or living with endangered species. Through asking these questions, my goal is also to elucidate the ways in which different epistemologies may be translated, heirarchized, or dismissed during Anthropogenic species loss.
Before starting at Rice, I completed my Bachelor of Arts at the University of Chicago, where I majored in International Studies. My thesis centered on problematizing parasite/host relationships and technonatural embodiments via online community forums on parasitic disease.
