Areas of Specialization

Research Interests: Rural areas, agriculture; the intersection of morality, policy, and bureaucracy. Europe (esp. European Union, Ireland, and Finland).

Current Research Projects

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University at Buffalo. My dissertation research examines how moral and ethical values are utilized, negotiated, and contested during encounters between Northern Ireland farmers and European Union bureaucracy. Policy changes play an important role in these interactions. My work serves as a case study of how people in general interact with bureaucracy- an ever increasing presence in our lives.

My Master’s thesis, titled “Finnish-Sri Lankan Marriages: An Anthropological Examination,” explored how transnational marriages create families combining two languages, religions and cultures; and how processes of integration, hybridity and tolerance maintain these relationships.
