I am a 4th year doctoral candidate in the department of anthropology and part of the Human and Environmental Change lab supervised by Dr. Donald R. Nelson. I am interested on the ways sensorial experiences elicit memories and emotions around an urban lagoon complex in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. My academic interests are primarily centered in (urban) political ecology, sensory studies, memories, affect, emotions, and the broad developments in anthropology of water.
In the past I worked as an ethnographer and research assistant at the Cambodian-Laotian Community Strength & Resilience Project for Dr. Denise Lewis.
