Biography

Subfield: Cultural Forms

Dissertation Chair: Dr. Kathleen Stewart

My current research focuses on postosicalism and everyday life in Albania.  At the present moment I am conducting dissertation fieldwork in the capital city of Tirana.  I have experience studying archaeology, hip-hop performance, nationalism, race, and ethnicity in Albania and other parts of Southeastern Europe.  I received my bachelor's degree in 2008 from Millsaps College in Jackson, MS.  From 2008 until 2009 I was a Fulbright fellow in Albania.  I began the program at UT in the fall of 2009.
