I have a PhD (2019) in Sociology from The University of Edinburgh, investigating transnational fashion and apparel related efforts in the wake of the 2013 Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh.
I found my way to the PhD after working for a long time on Social Alterations, an online education resource on social and environmental challenges associated with the global fashion and apparel industry. When I am not teaching or writing (or chasing after my toddler!), you’ll find me thinking about knowledge dissemination.
My research themes and interests include: transnational social movements and related activism (online and offline), work & labour rights, environmental justice, global fashion and apparel production and consumption, digital sociology, research methods, and knowledge dissemination.
