Overview

I work on water and energy politics amidst the constraints of the Anthropocene. 

My larger research agenda is on environmental ethics and how groups conceptualize and politicize their relationships to nature. As a cultural anthropologist, I am particularly interested in how energy and environmental impacts disproportionately negatively affect marginalized communities.  

I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cultural Anthropology and Environmental Science and Policy (Nicholas School of the Environment) at Duke University.
