My research explores how infrastructure and sewage shape perceptions on water and environmental impacts. I currently work investigating water pollution in coastal Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
I also work with Dr. Denise Lewis in the Cambodian and Laotian Strength and Resilience project looking at populations reliant on the sea food industry and vulnerable to disasters in the U.S. South.
Research interests: Anthropology of infrastructure, landscapes, memory, water governance, sewage, Brazil and U.S. South.
