About

I’m a food researcher and artist studying the ways cultural, political, and environmental processes are lived out through embodied food experiences.  As a PhD student in Anthropology at Indiana University Bloomington I research eating in public, and when I’m away from my desk I love to take film photographs.  I graduated with my Master’s degree in Gastronomy (Food Studies) from Boston University in 2019, having hosted a series of Nostalgia Dinners and written my thesis on how food is used in response to trauma.  My pronouns are she/her/hers.

To see what I’m thinking and writing about lately, check out my blog on this site.
