Biographical Statement: I am a PhD student in the Anthropology and Environmental Policy department and a trainee in the Systems Approaches to Understanding and Navigating the New Arctic (SAUNNA) NRT program. I am from Sitka, Alaska and completed my B.S. in Anthropology and Museum Studies with a minor in Philosophy at Central Washington University in 2021. My experience at Central Washington University gave me access to a uniquely diverse and holistic approach to anthropology and science which I try to apply in all of my personal and professional endeavors. My research interests sit broadly in environmental anthropology, including post-colonial subsistence living, fisheries, Indigenous Knowledge/Indigenous Science, Indigenous sovereignty, cross-cultural environmental relationships and communication.
