Brief Bio: 

I am a PhD student in the Anthropology program at the CUNY Graduate Center. My research interests are in masculinity, linguistic anthropology, performance and new media. Specifically, my dissertation focuses on the ethnographic study of pickup artists and so-called seduction communities, and how neoliberal ethics of self-management integrate with changing norms of intimacy for men. I have previously conducted ethnographic fieldwork in locations such as Italy (on immigration and community identity in a small town in rural northern Italy), and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (on community and dispossession in preparations for the 2016 Olympic Games), as well as in Harlem, New York (on the politics of gentrification and food consumption). I have extensive teaching experience as an Adjunct Lecturer at Brooklyn College from 2010 to 2013, developing and teaching courses on subjects including linguistic anthropology, ethnographic methods, political anthropology, and an introduction to socio-cultural anthropology. I was raised in Rome, Italy, and am fluent in English and Italian, as well as conversant in French, Portuguese, and Arabic.
