Originally from Berkeley, California, I completed doctoral work in Anthropology at Oxford University in 2011. I'm currently a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at McGill University in Montreal. 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.
