I am a PhD Candidate in Gender Studies and Anthropology at the University of Adelaide. I completed a Bachelor of Arts with double majors in French and Anthropology, also at the University of Adelaide, with first class Honours in Anthropology for my thesis 'Dialysis in the Desert: Blood, biopower, and biomedical technologies in Central Australia' which explored relationships between land, machines, and bodies for anangu and warlpiri people using dialysis to manage End-Stage Renal Disease. My current PhD work draws on Medical Anthropology, Gender Studies, and Science and Technology Studies to investigate settler colonialism and biopower in relation to discourses of intergenerational trauma and epigenetics.
