Postdoctoral Research AssociateCollege of Life and Environmental Sciences University of Exeter
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 role of moral cosmologies of health in the Himalaya’s development encounter. Here I traversed interesting materialities routes—examining the role geomancy and local deities play in Himalayan in political questions climate and development.
It was the interest in vernacular health and environmental ecologies that led to my current position. I currently act 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: a fundamental change in direction, and one that I am greatly enjoying. 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.
Andrea is currently a postdoctoral researcher on the ESRC funded Production Without Medicalisation project.
