I study the social reproduction of care and political subjectivity, particularly in the climate politics of electricity, housing, and recreation infrastructure in central California and northeastern Brazil. My research is supported by the Berkeley Fellowship for Graduate Study.

Prior to this research, I founded and directed the climate change communication non-profit Float Map, worked at Navigant as an energy economics and policy consultant for public agencies and utilities, and toured as a working musician in pop and ambient groups.
