I am an Anthropologist and Harper-Schmidt Fellow in the University of Chicago Society of Fellows and Collegiate Assistant Professor in the Social Sciences Collegiate Division.  I am currently working on my book, provisionally entitled: Running to Labor: Ethiopian Women Distance Runners in Networks of Capital. Based off of my dissertation, the book is an ethnographic study about women long distance runners from Ethiopia. I am also working on a multimedia project about my research to be published in both Amharic and English about the working lives of runners from Ethiopia.  Beyond  my academic work I do freelance writing about the intersections of sports, race, gender, politics, and labor, and consult on a range of projects.
