Darius Sadighi


Darius Sadighi earned his BA in music composition and sound studies from NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study and an MA in anthropology from the University of Chicago. He is interested primarily in healthcare, the startup sector, computational capitalism, and media. Currently, he is researching the emergent digital healthcare industry in Vietnam (particularly Saigon) and the ways in which biocapital, technology, and health intersect in a postcolonial, late socialist, and neoliberal setting. In doing so, he wishes to examine health and technics in relation to notions of value and alienation under regimes of increasing privatization. In addition to medical anthropology, he is interested in science and technology studies, postcolonial studies, and media studies.
