"I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociocultural Anthropology at Princeton University. My dissertation project focuses on racial identity construction and environmental imagination among farming communities in the Sigatoka Valley, Fiji. Broadly construed, my research interests are in: political anthropology, environmental studies, Indigenous studies, diaspora studies, and agriculture and labor studies. The AAA annual conferences have been excellent opportunities for me to widen and diversify my theoretical and ethnographic interests, and have been the launching pad for several research and academic collaborations."
