I received my Ph.D. in Anthropology from Temple University in January 2007. My dissertation is titled Universities, Cities, Design, and Development: An Anthropology of Aesthetic Expertise, and was funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and Temple University. Ethnographic fieldwork took place during a university-community partnership engaged in economic and community development through the application of urban design.

I’ve taught in the Urban Studies Program and the Critical Writing Program at the University of Pennsylvania, as well as the Penn Institute for Urban Research. My interests include aesthetics, power, and expertise; design and culture; governmentality and design policy. My article "Design as Power: Paul Virilio and the Governmentality of Design Expertise" was published in Culture, Theory and Critique 48(2), Oct. 2007.
