PhD Candidate, Political Economy, Macquarie University
Brigit is currently a PhD candidate researching the importance of political and social origins of modern food capitalism to the current debate of food policy. Since states clearly vary in how they organise the provisioning of food, her research asks whether it is reasonable to expect that some countries are better prepared than others in integrating demands from the ecological and social spheres when designing national food policies.
Outside her academic life, she also advocates for a fairer redistribution of food resources. She is a member of the Sydney Food Fairness Alliance and the Right to Food Coalition.
