I am a PhD candidate in human geography at York University, working on the new geographies of Philippine capitalism.
I had previously worked on ‘disasters’ and the definition and control of urban populations for my masters at the University of Manchester, and on corporate malfeasance for my bachelors from the University of the Philippines Diliman, both in sociology.
Beginning in 2008 I have also taught and designed undergraduate courses on contemporary issues in the Philippines, cities in the global South, and the global economy, both at UP Diliman and at York.
I maintain an interest in the overlaps between research, public due diligence, and investigative journalism. My work has been featured by the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism, the Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Talk of the Town, and as a special report on ABS-CBN News.
I also contribute to the Alitaptap Collective.
