PhD Student, Yale University
Contributing Editor, Platypus, The CASTAC Blog
I’m a PhD student in the Yale Department of Anthropology, where I study technology, finance, and media in North America and Europe. I’m interested in how human selves are created and modeled in spaces of technological development. How do cultural beliefs about what it means to be human, and what it means to be a better human, animate the designs of emergent technologies? My ethnographic work has brought me in contact with art collectors, Wall Street bankers, and, most recently, NFT enthusiasts in Berlin. I am now beginning a dissertation project on Silicon Valley's driverless car developers.
