I am a doctoral candidate at the School of Information, University of Michigan. As an information scholar, I study the automated regulation and control of transnational food supply chains. Through ethnographic inquiry, I study the "everyday politics" of automation in food governance and interrogate the many technological promises that sustain it.

agricultural anthropology, logistics and supply chain studies, postcolonial and feminist science and technology studies, history of computing and technology, infrastructure studies, critical cultural studies
