I am a Caribbean woman, designer, and a multimodal cultural anthropologist. My work explores criminalization, (in)security, policing, statecraft, racialization, gendering, place-making, and visuality in urban areas of Trinidad and beyond. I received my PhD in cultural anthropology with certificates in urban studies and experimental ethnography from the University of Pennsylvania (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
