I am a second-year MA student in Animal Studies at NYU and interested in the issues surrounding the use of animals for food production. For this reason I am drawn to cellular agriculture and specifically how cultivated technologies can lead to a more sustainable and ethical world for all species. I am interested in making this "moon-shot" goal a reality by increasing collaboration in the field. I believe the field has tremendous potential to lead a new way to innovate that is as progressive on the technology front as it is in distributive benefits.
I have previously worked as a research assistant on "Saving Animals, Saving Ourselves," (Oxford University Press) by Jeff Sebo, a book exploring climate change, pandemics and our treatment of animals. I am currently a fellow at Sentient Media where I hope to highlight stories about the effect of the anthropocene on animals.
