Annah is joining ENP as a postdoc researching processes of environmental globalisation, with a specific emphasis on the role of China in shaping and responding to global environmental transformation. Annah is coming from the University of California, Berkeley, where she received her PhD in Society and Environment from the department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management. Prior to obtaining her PhD, she received her master’s degree from Duke University in environmental management. Annah’s work focuses on the extraction and trade in natural resources from a critical social science perspective. Her PhD research provided a global analysis of the trade in endangered timber linking Madagascar and China, including ethnographic fieldwork in both countries. Expanding from her dissertation case study, Annah’s current research considers how “global China” contributes to dynamics of environmental globalisation in a multipolar and contested geopolitical landscape.
