Currently based at UC Berkeley, California, I was trained in Social Anthropology at the University of Vienna, Austria, and received my PhD in Political Geography at the University of Zürich, Switzerland. My research interests mainly circle around spatial aspects of socio-economic practices and structures; around the crossroads of material and social realms. Questions of access to resources and topics from political ecology theoretically inform my strongly ethnographic empirical approach. Regionally, my fieldwork and general research experience ranges from urban settings in Europe to rural settings in Central/East (DR Congo, Uganda, Tanzania) and Southern Africa (RSA, Namibia, Botswana).
This page contains a selection of both peer-reviewed and public-outreach publications, as well as essays, interviews, and information on some of the projects I am or was involved in.
