About Manisha Anantharaman

I am a tenure track Assistant Professor in Justice, Community and Leadership. My research and teaching interests straddle the interconnected spheres of sustainability and social justice, applying participatory and ethnographic methodologies. I received my PhD from the Department of Environmental Science Policy and Management at the University of California Berkeley (2015). I am a founding member of the Global Research Forum on Sustainable Consumption and Production, a world-wide network of researchers and practitioners working on sustainability transitions. Previously, I worked as a program officer at the Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment, India, coordinating multiple research projects and organizing environmental education programs.
