I am a Social Anthropologist whose research areas of interest are identity, embodiment, and state-citizen relations.

My current areas of research include:

- youth and mental wellbeing
- Covid-19 in New Zealand

I am currently the MA researcher on a Marsden-funded multi-disciplinary project on how young people in New Zealand use digital technology to improve their health and wellbeing.
