Areas of Interest

My research engages with U.S. communities socially and ecologically impacted by toxic legacies from the United States’ "war on terror." By evaluating perceptions of national security and the military normal against a backdrop of toxicity and neoliberal expansion of corporate capitalism, I seek to hone in on domestic forms of resistance and refusal to U.S. military projects to explore the ways in which insurgent living reinforces kinship bonds and makes living and dying well possible in militarized-toxified environments.
