Research Interests: Rural areas, agriculture; how people interact and negotiate with bureaucracy; the effects of national/transnational policies on local communities; immigration; marriage; the anthropology of Europe (esp. European Union, Ireland, and Finland)
I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University at Buffalo. My dissertation research examines the concepts and practices used to navigate social relationships between farmers and regional/EU agricultural inspectors in Northern Ireland, as well as how people negotiate the various layers of bureaucracy they encounter in their everyday 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.
