hello

I am a cultural anthropologist of property, design, and race. My ethnographic research explores the relationship between practices of experimentation in South African housing design and broader shifts in racialized property relations and activist practice post-apartheid.

My dissertation fieldwork in Cape Town was supported by the National Science Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant (Cultural Anthropology and Law & Social Sciences Programs) and the Center for Global Peace and Conflict Studies (UCI). I will earn my PhD in anthropology from UC Irvine in June 2020. Before Irvine, I got an MPhil in Social Anthropology at the University of Cambridge and a BA in Anthropology and Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame.
