I joined the Making Differences team at CARMAH in 2018 as a visual anthropologist. Over the next two years, I will be developing a range of nonfiction audiovisual projects (i.e. film, podcasting, photography etc.) both in collaboration with other researchers at CARMAH, as well as independently. In particular, these projects, which I group under the broad title “Afterlives,” will inquire into the roles of museum and heritage spaces in the 21st century, both in Berlin and elsewhere, by exploring the ways in which, through them, various historical pasts haunt our present realities.

Before joining CARMAH, I received my MA in Documentary Filmmaking in 2018, from DocNomads—a mobile film school jointly administered between Universidade Lusófona (Portugal), Színház-és Filmművészeti Egyetem (Hungary) and the LUCA School of Arts (Belgium). I have also been awarded an MPhil in World History in 2016 by Trinity College, University of Cambridge (UK) and completed my BA in History and Literature, and Anthropology, with a minor/secondary field in Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University (USA) in 2015.
