Austin Lord, a PhD Candidate in the Department of Anthropology of Cornell University, whose research interests include disaster and aftermath, temporality, water and energy, the politics of environmental knowledge, risk and uncertainty, infrastructure, finance, memory work, visual ethnography, community-engaged research methods, and the lived experience of climactic and environmental change. Austin's dissertation research analyzes the politics of aftermath and anticipation in post-earthquake Nepal, focusing on three sites in Rasuwa district where landslides occurred during the 2015 Nepal earthquake. His work asks: What kinds of differently imagined pasts, presents, and futures are being 'built back better' and for whom?
