I am a designer and a multimodal cultural anthropologist. My work explores (in)security, policing, statecraft, racialization, gendering, place-making and visuality in urban areas of Trinidad and beyond. I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn). I am a member of CAMRA at UPenn—an interdisciplinary collective committed to participatory, experimental media-making. I am also persuing a graduate certificate in Urban Studies and I am student affiliate of the Center for Experimental Ethnography at UPenn.
Prior to starting my PhD program, I was trained as an architect at the Fay Jones School of Architecture and worked at ACLA architecture, (a design firm in Trinidad) full-time until 2015 . I continue to work with ACLA architecture as a consultant
