Department of Social Anthropology



I am interested the anthropology of economy and finance, the financial market in particular, also the polifiration of ‘new economy’ and gig economies. In my research, I assess the extent to which the manners in the financial industry have permeated into the individual’s understanding of everyday life, whilst searching for the potential whereby individuals create alternative knowledge against financial orthodoxy.
