Anna is a Doctoral Candidate in the Department of Sociology at Columbia University. She is broadly interested in how our relationships with others impact our life trajectories and outcomes. Her dissertation is an ethnography in northern Peru of the relationships between local men and the foreign women who visit their town as tourists. She examines what these relationships can reveal to us about intimate identities and relationships in a modern, transnational context. Her prior work examined how networks impact professional outcomes in academia, specifically for those with a marginalized identity within the academy.
