I am a lecturer in cultural anthropology at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. From 2015 to 2017, I was an assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Tsukuba in Japan. I received my Ph.D. in Social-cultural Anthropology at the University of Toronto in 2015. My research is in science and technology studies and cultural anthropology. I am interested in how science and technology provide ways for people to understand themselves as social and biological beings, and how they re-shape what counts as society, culture, and politics in the process. My dissertation research is an ethnographic study of the creation of human-machine interfaces in Japan and North America.
