Personal profile

Research profile

I'm a social anthropologist and I'm interested in perceptions of and practices surrounding security. My ethnographic research at sea and on land focuses on:


- data security, data citizenship, datafication, cyber-physical systems and cryptography
- labor rights, AI and automation
- shipping, globalization, sovereignties, existential security, and maritime piracy
- mapping of social and political space, human geography, religious identity, and violent conflict
