I am a PhD Candidate at Columbia University's Department of Anthropology.

My previous writing has traced the contours of the Anthropocene across art, architecture, science, technology, and economics over a decade-long career in journalism, from London to Berlin and Beijing.

I am the joint inaugural recipient of the Columbia Department of Anthropology’s Elaine Combs-Schilling Award, and also serve as a Mentor for AuthorAID—an international network promoting intellectual exchange between the Global North and South.

You can access my selected publications on Academia.edu, and read more about the ecosocial causes that I support on my Patreon page.
