Kristin Gupta is TalkDeath’s Social Media Manager and a Staff Writer. She is a PhD candidate in Cultural Anthropology at Rice University, where she thinks a lot about death, queerness, and technology. Her ongoing research explores normative quantifications of life expectancy and shifting notions of what constitutes a full life among American death doulas. Kristin has also trained as a doula and is committed to reimagining what deathcare can be both inside and outside of academia. In her free time, she plays piano and takes too many pictures of her cat.
