Research Interests


Anna is a doctoral student 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. 

Before beginning her doctoral studies, Anna worked with the CDC’s National HIV Behavioral Surveillance Study at the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts, and was a Senior Research Assistant with the NIH Adolescent Trials Network at The Fenway Institute.

Anna is a Paul F. Lazarsfeld Fellow, a Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellow, a National Science Foundation (NSF) GRFP Fellow, and a Mellon Mays Fellow. She also works as the graduate assistant for the Barnard Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship program.
