Bio

Tina is currently pursuing her PhD in Global Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her research examines the biopolitical and bioeconomic dimensions of contemporary sanitation infrastructure mega projects, hygiene campaigns, and excremental politics in China, India, and Egypt. She pays particular attention as to how gender, hygiene, and social norms are not only enforced through sanitation initiatives, but made into moral codes which take on new dimensions within speculative bioeconomies of excrement.
