I am a social anthropologist using ethnographic methods to explore infrastructures, environments, and materiality. After completing my BSc and MSc at Stockholm University, I went on and did a PhD at the University of Manchester. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher based at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow.
My first major fieldwork (2018-2019) centred around fog capture and atmospheric attunements in coastal Peru. I enquired into the work of local actors who engaged fog as a material possibility for capturing and transforming into water, primarily in the context of urban fog oasis conservation, water infrastructure, and informal urbanisation. Navigate this website for published and forthcoming writings based on this research.
My interest in human engagements with the atmospheric and things skyward eventually led me to my current project, an ethnographic study of outer space infrastructures and imaginaries in Sweden. In brief, I am curious about the making and reshaping of on/off Earth ecologies through various forms of infrastructural mediation, asking what happens to social, political, and environmental relations when confronted by the extraterrestrial as an infrastructural phenomenon.
As an undergraduate student, I spent one year at the Complutense University of Madrid, and during my PhD I was a visiting student in the Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Davis. I have also been affiliated with the Faculty of Social Sciences, Pontifical Catholic University of Peru. Prior to all this, I studied Mechanical Engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
