Resistant Microbes and Precarious Lives: Aquaculture health practices and their social and material determinants
I completed my PhD in Religious Studies from the University of Aberdeen examined the intersection of religion, development and climate in Ladakh, North-West India. I then acted as teaching fellow in anthropology at the University of Exeter, where I continued to research and publish material on the relationship between religious and ceremonial governance, and the development encounter in the Himalaya. I am currently a postdoctoral research assistant for the University of Exeter’s geography department on an ESRC-funded multidisciplinary collaboration examining the socioeconomic drivers for antimicrobial use in Bangladesh’s aquaculture industry. I bring previous experience of economic progress and development, sustainability and environment, and disaster response to the project, as well as exploring novel avenues and methodologies in medical anthropology.
