I'm a doctoral researcher at the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies of Culture. With a background in journalism, gender studies, and anthropology, I am interested in the socio-material entanglements between human and more-than-human beings in the web of life.
Currently, I am working on the ERC project "A Middle Way? Probing Sufficiency through Meat and Milk in China' (MidWay), where my focus lies on the production and consumption of milk. Instead of regarding milk as natural, self-evident, and singular, I see milk as diverse, the assemblage of cow, fodder, milking activity, and transformative human actions and technologies including but not limited to fortification, transportation, and marketing that emerge in different socio-material contexts, that co-generate the resulting expression as liquid, powder, or emulsion. By seeing milk as an assemblage of actors and processes, I emphasize the entanglement of heterogeneous entities – both human and nonhuman – in rendering milk. I set out to study the becoming (Braidotti, 2002) of milk in China with multi-sited ethnography.
