Biography

I completed my BA in Development Studies (minors in Sociology and Global Politics) and MA in Global Politics at the Ateneo de Manila University, where I was part of the teaching and research staff from 2006 to 2012. I did my PhD in social anthropology at the University of Edinburgh, where I was a Wadsworth International Fellow of the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research. My PhD thesis investigates the emergence of middle class families in the post-1945 central Philippines and contributes to wider scholarship on the generative powers of kinship and personhood, as well as their complex and ambivalent character. I have recently expanded my interest on the post-1945 generation through my participation in an ESRC-funded study of the generation of English women born between 1939 and 1952, their experiences of mobility and transitions during childhood and youth, and the implications for later life.
