My name is Iris Maher. I am an anthropologist, writer & PhD candidate in the Emerging Technologies Lab at Monash University. I am a member of the ADM+S Centre.

Outside of academia, my interests include: fashion and styling, reading contemporary literature, and writing both fiction and nonfiction.

I am the host of the podcast Anthro of Pop Culture (available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts). In this podcast space I examine contemporary moments in pop culture through the lens of anthropology. Specifically, I look at the ever changing trends in fashion and beauty.
