Waste is on top of my mind, although not always centre stage in every research project.
I was part of the initial steering group and now am a member of the research group waste in motion funded by the German Research Foundation. With Nicolas Schlitz I’ve co-edited a Special Issue on frictions in global recycling networks.
On a global scale, I am cooperating with the Disaster STS network and the European waste research group behind ‘Opening the Bin’. These are all wonderful people.
Waste happens to be my favourite topic for public engagement: in theatre, public discussions, keynotes, and radio shows. Always happy for invites.
