PhD Candidate

Dissertation Title: Projecting Stability: Retirement Practices and Water Management in the American West


I am a PhD candidate working with Susan Gal, Joseph Masco, Ryan Jobson, and Catherine Fennell (Columbia University). My work lies at the intersection of linguistic and cultural anthropology. My dissertation studies the good life and its manifestations in the American West, with an emphasis on environmental imperialism, urban infrastructure, and the production of whiteness.
