When I'm not editing, I'm working on my own writing projects...
captive elephants in thailand
I am currently undertaking an ongoing study of the devastating impact of deforestation on a marginalised, traditionally forest-dwelling people and their elephants in northeast Thailand. I conducted ethnographic field work for this study over a ten year period, in part for my PhD thesis.
epicure and culture
I write for ethical travel and consumption blog, Epicure and Culture, and have recently published articles on environmentally sensitive tourist destinations, a jewellery-making organisation run by displaced women in Turkey, volunteering with street animals in India and saving endangered sea turtles in Mexico.
horses and street dogs
I've written a couple of journal articles about horse-human communication, and an article and book chapter about street dogs in Bangkok, Thailand. Both studies were based on my own ethnographic field work and my Masters and PhD research.
