I welcome applications on topics related to environmental politics, political ecology, neoliberal conservation, the politics of energy and environment and development in (southern) Africa and beyond. If you are interested, please send me a copy of your CV and a 6 page proposal reviewing the literature, stating your questions and outlining your methods.
I currently have the pleasure of working with several PhD students:
Emile Smidt: Crisis conservation, rhino poaching, and violent conflict in South Africa
Michela Marcatelli: water politics in South Africa
Alonso Ramirez: transfrontier conservation, territorialization and neoliberalism in Costa Rica
Ome Chattranond: dams and international water governance in the Mekong Delta
