PhD Student



PhD candidate at the Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health, University of Exeter, UK. With a mixed background in biology and anthropology, my research interest is in the relationship between humans and nonhumans. ‘Mosquito-researcher’ since 2011, my academic focus has been on understanding the ecology of ‘troubling species’ and its effects on science, technology, society and politics. As a member of the Geography Department of the same university, I contribute with More-than-human Geography, Geography of Diseases and the Science, Technology and Society (STS) Studies.
