About Rebecca Enderby

I am a PhD student at King's College London, researching the politics of biofuels and their social and ecological impact in India. In general my interests lie within critical environmental geography, covering various issues around the environment, gender, power relations and the construction of nature. I am also a keen amateur photographer and I enjoy trying to capture some of my research interests through images, as well as photographing new environments, cultures and livelihoods. I am fascinated by bees, love yoga, art and photography, a good book, good coffee, Italian food and Turkish simit. I currently live in Bangalore, India, amongst Holy Cows and auto-wallahs, which I love, but my heart lies in London.
