I hold a PhD in Social Anthropology using Visual Media from the University of Manchester, where I specialised in the contemporary Caribbean and Visual Anthropology. I am currently Associate Professor of Anthropology at Tallinn University where I lecture and coordinate the Audiovisual Ethnography track in Social Anthropology. One strand of my research has focused on developing audiovisual methods for anthropological research. I have produced and directed numerous documentaries and sound-works, including the award winning documentary "Mangrove Music". My most recent documentary, "Uus Tous, Vana Moon", was screened on ETV as part of the Eesti Lood series. I have also curated ethnographic film programmes for the European Association of Social Anthropology, International Society of Ethnology and Folklore, and the Finnish Anthropological Society. I have also curated ethnographic sound programmes at numerous conferences and public events in Europe and the Caribbean. I currently serve in the curating team of the Riga Pasaules Film Festival, an annual documentary film festival held in Riga. Another strand of my research concerns itself with the complexities of Caribbean island life in a para-colonial and global context. My book Caribbean Island Movements: Culebra's Trans-insularities (Rowman and Littlefield 2017) makes a case for the concept of "transinsularism" as a means to engage productively with the contradictions that characterise Caribbean island identities. The book describes transinsular relationships within the context of anti-military grassroots activism, tourism and development policies, maritime geography, and music. The monograph is based on a long term relationship with the island of Culebra, located in the north-eastern Caribbean.
