I am an advocate for, and researcher on social and environmental justice. At the University of Melbourne, Australia, I completed my PhD titled ‘Women in the Oil Zones: A Feminist Analysis of Oil Depletion, Poverty, Conflict and Environmental Degradation’. It uses an ecofeminist approach to expose the unequal distribution of risks and benefits of oil projects between men and women in oil exploitation sites. I was awarded a Post-doctoral writing Fellowship at the Rachel Carson Center of Environment and Societies in Munich, Germany to write the thesis as a book. In my new position as a Post-doctoral Fellow at the International Institute of Social Studies, The Netherlands, I have extended my research framework to new natural resource exploitation sites in Bolivia and Chile where lithium is extracted to fuel the energy transition.  In this new work, I question the environmental and social justice of the post-carbon society.
