- About Me
I am a cultural and linguistic anthropologist specializing in human differentiation and stratification. My work incorporates mixed methods and historical ethnography, including archival work.
I have conducted research in French Guiana (France), Haiti, and North America.
My master’s work centered on the history of beet sugar in 19th-century mainland France and its effects on the cane sugar market of the Francophone Caribbean colonies, in particular Guyane Française.
My doctoral research attempts to answer the question: what is the effect of the longterm threat of imminent displacement on intergenerational exchange? I worked on Tangier Island, Virginia, which is expected to be uninhabitable by 2040, but remains home to approx. 430 residents. I anticipate completing the PhD in 2020.
