Aneil Tripathy

Personal Biography

I am a PhD student in anthropology at Brandeis University. I am focused in economic and environmental anthropology, with a particular interest in finance, its dynamics and its socioeconomic effects. Social change fascinates me, and I believe that the financial industry is having a tremendous impact on processes of change in our society.

Gardening is my passion, and it teaches me that imposing one’s will on the world is much less fruitful and wastes a lot more energy than trying to learn about the world and reinforcing the positives from what is already around us. Instead of neat manicured gardens I love entangled complexity, and I view this as the real order of our cosmos.
