Sport. Race. Masculinity. Kinship.
I'm a socio-cultural anthropologist whose ethnographic research uses sport to theorize race, kinship, gender, and the body. I received my doctorate degree from the University of Virginia and I'm currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Notre Dame. I will join Notre Dame’s Department of Anthropology faculty as an Assistant Professor in fall 2021.
My fieldwork has been supported by various agencies, including the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship, the National Science Foundation, the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research, and the National Collegiate Athletic Association.
