Curriculum vitae

My doctoral work at Cambridge University (2003-7) was based on field research among the Trio, Wayana and Akuriyo, who are Carib-speaking people of north-eastern Amazonia (Suriname and French Guiana), and took as its principal focus indigenous leadership and ideas of wealth. During research fellowships at the Musée du Quai Branly, Paris (2007-8), Oxford Brookes (2008-9) and Oxford University (2009-10), I explored comparative and theoretical dimensions of native Amazonian property relations, and I carried out further research on the political ecology of environmental conservation. In my work at the Graduate Institute, Geneva (2010-12) I studied the globalization of forest governance and conservation and the ‘greening’ of development, focusing on the UN-REDD ‘readiness’ programme underway in Suriname. I subsequently taught Anthropology of Development and Environmental Anthropology at UCL, where I created and directed the Centre for the Anthropology of Sustainability (2013-19), before joining the University of Bologna in 2019.
