I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s History, Anthropology, and Science, Technology & Society (HASTS) Program.

My dissertation project, “Technologies of Perception: The Search for Life and Intelligence Beyond Earth” analyzes both the history of searches for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI), and searches today through ethnographic research.
