I am an SIA (Social Impact Assessment) practitioner in Malta, trained in cultural anthropology, with a Masters in Visual Anthropology from the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology (Manchester, U.K.). My current interests are in environmental anthropology on the one hand, & ethnographic film-making, on the other. I teach visual anthropology & ethnographic documentary, part-time at the University of Malta.
Currently reading for a cross-disciplinary PhD. I am a Visiting Fellow at Birmingham City University and a founding member of the Knowledge ExCHANGE Research Centre of Excellence (CHANGE).
