Summary: Interests across mobility, travel writing, temporality, visual anthropology and the environmental humanities.


I am an interdisciplinary social anthropologist who studies the changing roles of mobility, media and the environment in the contemporary world. My research investigates the physical and symbolic consequences of increased mobility with an emphasis on the everyday geopolitics of territory, time and labour, particularly among among transient communities in the European Arctic.
