I am a medical anthropologist with training in sensory ethnography. My area of focus is on landmine detection industries in Cambodia, especially those that work with animal detection aids. I am dedicated to engaged studies and has conducted research in diverse fields from public mental health disparities to international policy.
I also produce public humanities exhibitions where I trouble the boundary between art and anthropology. These pieces have been shown in a wide variety of places from academic conferences, art galleries, to experimental public-facing exhibitions. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Genocide and Mass Atrocity Prevention at Binghamton University, New York and am a member of the policy-scholar team at the Mansfield-Luce Asia Foundation. In January 2021, I will be the Co-Editor of the journal, Visual Anthropology Review.
