My PhD was taken in Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley, for which I conducted ethnographic work in the hydropower industry in Laos. I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Climate Justice Research Project at Dartmouth College before spending five years as a Lecturer and Research Fellow at the National University of Singapore. I'm currently writing a genealogy of the science of anthropogenic climate change, while conducting ethnographic research for a project called Accounting for Atmosphere: Climate change, quantification and the new Earth. Broadly speaking, I am interested in people engaged in environmental practices from compromised positions.
