I am Associate Professor in the Anthropology of Migration at the University of Oxford. I hold doctoral and masters degrees in sociocultural anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley (2009), as well as an interdisciplinary masters degree in humanities and social thought from New York University (2002).

I specialize in political anthropology, focusing in particular on three areas: (1), the geopolitics of mobility and migration; (2), forms of statehood, sovereignty, and capitalism in post-Cold War Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union; and (3), (post)socialism as a critical lens for analysis of “late liberalism” and corresponding knowledge practices in anthropology.
