I recently completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Cultural Anthropology at Duke University. My dissertation Running to Labor: Ethiopian Women Distance Runners in Networks of Capital is an ethnographic study about women long distance runners from Ethiopia.


In the fall I will be starting at the University of Chicago as a Harper-Schmidt Fellow in the University of Chicago Society of Fellows and Collegiate Assistant Professor in the Social Sciences Collegiate Division. I also do freelance writing about the intersections of sports, race, gender, politics, and labor, and consult on a range of projects.
