I am a social anthropologist who is currently conducting ethnographic research about the conceptualisation, handling and management related to human death in contemporary Adelaide, South Australia. I am supervised by Dr Susan Hemer (Department of Anthropology) and Professor Anna Chur-Hansen (School of Psychology) from The University of Adelaide.

My research interests include: death, cybersuicide (live-streaming and suicide 'challenges and games') and performance.
