from Berkeley, California, I completed doctoral work in Anthropology at
Oxford University in 2011 and a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship at
McGill University from 2011 to 2013. I am currently an Assistant
Professor Status-Only in the Department of Anthropology, University of
Toronto, and a Senior Affiliate of Pacific Resources for Education and
Learning. In 2003-2004, I spent a year in a rural Marshallese community
as a volunteer English teacher. I returned to the country three times,
in 2007, 2009, and 2012, to conduct fieldwork on public responses to
the threat of sea level rise and other impacts of climate change. My popular writing and my academic work are closely related.
You can learn more about my involvement in the Marshall Islands in this BBC Oxford radio interview and these articles in the Oxford Mail and the Oxford Times.
