Biography

My research focuses on competing relations to place and history, as well as current and future land use, in contaminated spaces. I explore these issues ethnographically in my dissertation, “Unmaking Wastelands: Inheriting Waste, War, and Futures at the Hanford Site.” Located in Eastern Washington State, this former plutonium-production complex now hosts one of the largest, longest, and most complicated remediation efforts in the world on land to which three indigenous nations have reserved treaty rights. Among the key themes of this work were the limitations and omissions of the official discourses surrounding the remediation, and difficulty of contemporary policy frameworks to grapple with long-term consequences of nuclear weapons production. I recently completed a PhD program in Science and Technology Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I also received an M.A. in anthropology from the New School for Social Research, and a B.A. in sociology from the University of Texas at Austin.
