About ME

I am an ethnographic filmmaker, photographer, and PhD candidate in the Department of Anthropology at New York University. I previously completed undergraduate and master’s degrees at the University of Toronto and Columbia University, as well as a graduate certificate in Culture and Media from NYU Tisch School of the Arts. Through multi-sited fieldwork with animal scientists, activists, and rural farmers, my current research investigates changing political ecologies of cattle and dairy development in north India. My research is supported by the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. I am the director of the documentary short, Strangers Ourselves (2018).
