Thematic Interests

I am an anthropologist-in-training conducting long-term multispecies ethnographic research in Bali, Indonesia. I am interested in the public health management and practice, the biopolitical governance of populations, the creation and maintenance of bounded spaces in plural societies, and the development of multispecies ethnographic methods.
