I am a graduate student of sociocultural anthropology at the University of California, San Diego. I study the religion of a people living in the Ecuadorian Amazon. Ultimately, my goal is to be a professor of anthropology. I enjoy the outdoors, reading, and spending time with family.
I am a psychological anthropologist and Southeast Asianist. My research involves a comparative ethnography of Hmong communities in Thailand, the United States, and elsewhere in the diaspora. I study how migration experiences shape the sense of self and the meanings that Hmong make about the world.
