Dr Aisling Bailey

Lecturer, Sociology
Environmental Anthropology, Monash University, Australia


As an environmental anthropologist and sociologist, Aisling's research explores relationships between people and the natural environment. Specifically, Aisling's research investigates the role cultural understandings play in shaping these relationships in terms of environmental accountability, and examines the ways in which the health of people and place are reciprocally linked. Aisling has worked with organisations such as the Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies (CERES) and 3000Acres, and hopes in future to work on projects exploring the causes of environmental harm, and those exploring strategies to enhance environmental and human health and wellbeing.
