I'm a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of History and Sociology of Science at the University of Pennsylvania. My dissertation looks at the production of vernacular knowledge about the economy in colonial Burma. Broadly, I'm interested in the history of economics and geography alongside allied areas (cartography, mineralogy, etc.) that contributed to their elaboration. I'm also interested in lay expertise, early 20th century cultures of print, and the social and cultural history of markets and economic life.

Previous and other lives: I used to be a linguist and studied Sino-Tibetan languages with these folksI've always enjoyed hats and still occasionally enjoy playing with my shadowMy partner is a philosopher at heartMy passion is comedic puppetry and this is my business partner.
