Lines of research
My research involves thorough collection of empirical data to understand social and socio-environmental conflicts. I am committed to good writing as a way to disseminate knowledge. Learn more about my lines of research below.
Environmental Destruction in the Global South
Who is destroying nature in the global South? What are the dynamics that lead to such behaviour? How can we study environmental harm and crime in the global south?
Indigenous Peoples have been victimised for centuries, and the contributions they can make to society neglected. How can we understand this genocide? How can we use their knowledge to improve everyone's wellbeing?
The Politics of Knowledge Production about Crime
Who is producing what counts as knowledge regarding crime? How do global politics affect our knowledge on crime? And, what can we do about this?
