I am working towards my PhD in cultural anthropology at Cornell University. My research focuses on South Asian studies, with a particular focus on the Himalayan region. I have spent three years conducting ethnographic research in Kathmandu on development, conflict, and youth culture.
I work as a researcher for the National Geographic Channel. I work on many shows, but my main program is Taboo.
In 2009-10, I worked as a lead researcher and writer for the Asia Society where I helped produce the Webby Award-nominated site Homeland Afghanistan. Through this project, I began to merge into Afghan Studies.
In 2011, I worked as a researcher and copywriter for Ogilvy Entertainment.
