Areas of interest: urban and social geography, urban farming, organic and health movements

PhD project:

“Emerging organic food movements in Bangkok: pioneers for green urban lifestyles”

My PhD project analyses the emerging organic food movements in Bangkok in the context of New Social Movement theories. There is a focus on Bangkok's urban farming scene as one of the diverse array of players. I investigate motivations of key players in the organic movements, their correspondence with structural settings, and their contribution to green urban lifestyles.
