My research focuses on the anthropology of the life sciences. Broadly, I'm interested in examining how biological systems are increasingly understood by making them. Currently, I am concerned with how a growing number of amateur and craft practitioners use experimental practice — and sensory engagements with biological materials in particular — to critique and intervene into articulations of knowledge and power governing contemporary experimental sciences.

I am a sixth-year doctoral candidate in the HASTS Program at MIT. You can find my HASTS page here.
