My research interests are broadly surrounding the anthropology and philosophy of biology and the ecological sciences, cartography, postcolonial and feminist STS, and environmental and medical humanities. My dissertation project seeks to situate the phenomenon of wildfires and built environment fires in the context of capitalism and colonialism. I also study how ecologists make sense of their field, their relationship with their non-human subjects, and what that can tell us about ecologists' epistemological orientation to the biophysical environment, their understanding of ideas about human bodies, the environment, wellness and disease, and ecological relationships at large.
