Global Metropolitan Studies, Political Ecology, Science and Technology Studies
My research focuses on international environmental governance of electronic waste recycling. My work crosses both environmental and social sciences through a political ecology and science studies approach. I am interested in questions around risk and hazards discourse; the politics of quantification, classification, and calculation; and the political economy of international environmental governance. I draw on critical ethnography for my methodological approach and am focusing on the practices of producing e-waste science.
