About Laura

I'm an ethnographic filmmaker and PhD candidate in Cultural Anthropology at New York University. My research examines the use of animal reproductive biotechnology in India's dairy industry as it illuminates a more-than-human politics of "stratified reproduction" in the age of the Anthropocene.
