About Dr Hali Healy
Dr. Hali Healy has an MSc in Development Studies from University of London, SOAS, and a doctorate in Human Geography from King’s College London. Her PhD thesis, “A Political Ecology of Transdisciplinary Research” was inspired by her own experience working with international networks of academics and activists on European funded projects focused on sustainable development. She is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Johannesburg in the Department of Anthropology and Development Studies. Her research focuses on environmental justice (particularly in relation to mining and industrial/municipal waste management), protection of rural livelihoods in South Africa, and alternative development paradigms, notably post-extractivism / commoning initiatives in the South, and sustainable economic degrowth, and sustainable consumption and production in the North.
