I recently completed my PhD in Anthropology at Columbia University with a dissertation on settler-native relations in Argentina, and am now a visiting postdoc at the Collaborative Research Center Affective Societies. My research focuses on unresolved colonial legacies that shape the politics of public memory in immigrant societies, and on the affective worlds that sustain or upend these politics on the ground.
