I am an interdisciplinary cultural anthropologist interested in the ways that industrial agriculture alters the world we live in. My doctoral research focused on the rise of industrial coffee production in post-Đổi Mới Vietnam. This research produced an ethnography of the Vietnamese coffee industry and the ways in which it illuminates post-renovation histories of environment and livelihood, state regulatory practices, global aspirations, consumption culture, and anxiety around climate change in Southeast Asia. I am in the process of completing a full length book manuscript based on this research.  Broadly speaking, my interests are environmental anthropology, critical food and agriculture studies, and political and legal anthropology with a regional focus in Southeast Asia.
