I am completing a Ph.D. in Anthropology at The New School. My research interests cover historical and social studies of science,  technology, sound, and finance. My dissertation examines the role of earth and actuarial science in risk transfer financial service design. 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, The New School’s GIDEST and Heilbroner Fellowships, and The Asian School of Environment in Singapore. As a university teacher, I have designed and taught courses on anthropological theory and methods, social studies of science and finance, design, 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.
