Julia Corwin joined the Department of Geography and Environment in 2018. Her work focuses on the politics of global environmental governance and its relationship to the informal economy and global trade. Her research has focused on global flows of electronic ‘waste’ and their revaluation through economies of repair and maintenance in India, conducted through a patchwork ethnography of local markets understood as significant sites in global capital networks.
Julia holds a PhD in Geography from the University of Minnesota. Prior to her entry into academia, Julia worked on urban environmental issues in New York City.
