A repository of my
and field records
about the OCEANS AND COASTS.
My research practice is curious about how ideas of 'nature' and 'society' are produced and connected to one another. By drawing tools from the field of political ecology, I examine the relationship between knowledge and power in the process of place-making that depicts the oceans as a frontier(s).
For many years, I have worked on public policies which affect livelihoods across fisheries, agrarian, and forest ecologies.
I am interested in the locations of political-agency and the production of resistance mounted by coastal societies. More broadly, my work speaks to the imaginaries of people's relation to places that are at the cusp of land and sea.
Earth CoLab is a platform that brings together diverse individuals, institutions, and knowledge(s). Our aim is to develop new approaches to learning, science and society interactions, and art practices in nature.
I specifically work on conceptualising and delivering Earth Colab's learning programmes, to which I bring perspectives on human geography, political economy and political ecology. In addition, I lead a curatorial practice for field based art-science residencies.
