I’m an anthropologist of infrastructures, environments, and practices of speculation.
My first major fieldwork centred on fog capture and atmospheric attunements in coastal Peru. I enquired into the work of local actors who engaged fog as a material possibility that could be captured and transformed into water, primarily in the context of urban fog oasis conservation, water infrastructure, and informal urbanisation. Navigate this website for published and forthcoming articles based on this research.
My interest in human engagements with the atmospheric and things skyward eventually led me to my current project, an anthropological study of outer space infrastructures and imaginaries in Sweden. In brief, I’m curious about the making and reshaping of on/off Earth ecologies through various forms of infrastructural mediation, asking what happens to social and environmental relations when confronted by the extraterrestrial as an infrastructural phenomenon.
