Curriculum vitae

My doctoral work at Cambridge University (2003-7) was based on field research among Carib-speaking hunter gatherers and swidden horticulturalists (Trio, Wayana and Akuriyo) of north-eastern Amazonia (Suriname and French Guiana), and took as its principal focus indigenous Amazonian leadership in relation to native 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 indigenous perspectives on 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.
