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 the Central Desert' which explored relationships between land, machines, and bodies for anangu and warlpiri people using dialysis to manage End-Stage Renal Disease. My work uses Science and Technology Studies to explore settler colonialism and biopower in relation to Indigenous health and wellbeing in Australia.
