 Anthropologist and Multispecies Ethnographer

I am a lecturer in Social Anthropology at the University of Plymouth. I completed my doctorate in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Helsinki. 

Trained as a social anthropologist and multispecies ethnographer in the UK, France and Finland, I am especially interested in environmental change, indigenous peoples and religion. My research among  the forest peoples of Peninsular Malaysia explores how political marginalization, rapid environmental change and historical conditions of subordination and violence have shaped changes and continuities in Batek and Manya’ animistic practices and cosmologies.
