I am completing a Ph.D. in Anthropology at The New School. My research interests cover historical and social studies of science, technology, and finance. My dissertation examines how earth and actuarial scientists apprehend environmental phenomena and the proximity of this work to financial technology, reinsurance, and capital markets. The writing draws on ethnographic research in Singapore, Indonesia, and Hong Kong, with scientists and service providers working in laboratories, field stations, and private and public science offices. This work has been supported by the Social Science Research Council, The Wenner-Gren Foundation, and The New School’s GIDEST and Heilbroner Fellowships. Next Spring, I’ll be a visiting fellow at Sciences Po in Paris. As a university teacher, I have designed and taught courses on anthropological theory and methods, social studies of science and finance, and sound studies at Eugene Lang College and Parsons. I enjoy teaching and am passionate about helping students to develop their analytical and creative interests. In New York, I coordinate the Platform Economies Research Network and have worked as a research associate at the design firm Terreform.
