Presentation

I am an economic geographer primarily interested in interlinkages between global value chains and local development. I often explore issues of value creation and value capture in the Global South, and have mainly been working in Southeast Asia, especially Vietnam. I currently examine relations between ‘sustainable and responsible consumption’ and geographies of dissociation in the gems and jewellery sector. 

Primary research areas

My research interests are mainly in the following areas:

  • Economic geography
  • Global value chains and local development
  • Value creation and value capture in the global economy
  • Retail and consumption geographies
  • Sustainability and geographies of dissociation
  • Southeast Asia
  • Clothing, food, gems & jewellery
