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.
