Hello! Thanks for being here

I am a writer and cultural anthropologist. I'm interested in postindustrial environments in the Midwest.

My dissertation focused on the aftermath of the Flint water crisis. I explored how people form communities, make democratic decisions, and sustain hope in a crisis that last years. This research has been supported by the Wenner-Gren Foundation and the Martin Family Fellowship for Sustainability. 

I received my PhD from MIT's program in History, Anthropology, Science, Technology, and Society in 2023. I am currently a lecturer in the Tufts Anthropology Department.
