Biography


I'm a Ph.D. student in the History department at UT Austin. My research focuses on the social, economic, and environmental history of the modern middle east, with special attention to agricultural policies and commodities, knowledge production, and food provision policies. I am currently working on the movement of agricultural commodities and their cultural networks throughout and beyond the eastern Mediterranean during the interwar period. 

 

Together with Raymond Hyser, I founded the "Material History Workshop" - a bi-monthly graduate workshop centered around material culture. You can read more about the workshop here: https://notevenpast.org/uts-material-history-workshop/
