Biographical Info

I entered Columbia University as a pre-med student and shifted my studies to anthropology, where I became interested in the question of how humans represent memory in time and through various mediums (obsessed with German monuments and “anti-monuments”). After graduating, I moved to Tokyo to study Japanese and returned to New York City to begin my Masters in East Asian Cultural Studies at New York University. There, I focused on inter-war Japan and representations of the conflation of national and individual reproductive health and mental wellness. Now I work as a consultant and remain interested in time and storytelling, particularly around how illnesses are represented and how abnormalities or crises are defined. I love exploring these notions along with the evolving relationship between humans and technology in managing everyday health and wellness.
