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 gendered distribution of resource managment 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 pursue my research on gender and environmental conflicts. 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 where lithium is extracted to fuel the energy transition.  In this new work, I explore conflicts over resource managment and question the environmental and social justice of the post-carbon society.
