I am a doctoral student in sociocultural anthropology investigating sustainable agriculture initiatives in Bangalore, India.

I began my studies at UCLA in fall 2011 and received my MA in 2013. My MA thesis, titled “The Country and the City in Mid-20th Century Ethnographies of Village India,” examines ethnographic representations of the changing relationship between rural and urban India following Independence in 1947. For my doctoral research, I plan to complete fieldwork with agricultural sustainability NGOs in and around Bangalore, India, in order to understand how the interests of rural agriculturalists and urban middle and upper class consumers converge and conflict in the sustainable agriculture movement.
