I hold an M.F.A. in Poetry from the University of Michigan Helen Zell Writers’ Program where I was also a Zell Postgraduate Fellow in Poetry. I was also a Human-Animal Studies Fellow at Wesleyan University. My work considers human and free-ranging dog relations, focusing on questions of transience and mobility, and formal and informal management and care practices that emerge in relation and response to free-ranging dogs. I am a Ph.D. student in the department of Anthropology at University of Notre Dame.
