I’m an associate professor at Texas A&M University. My work focuses on the relations between sound (from radio broadcasting to gunshots), law, technology, and politics.

My first book, Sound-Politics in São Paulo (Oxford University Press, 2019), provides a sociological and ethnographic approach to environmental noise in Latin America’s largest city.

My current book project examines modern statecraft in Brazil through acoustic technologies such as wiretaps, sirens, and geolocation systems.
