Tina Beigi

L4E PhD Fellow – McGill University


Tina has completed a PhD in the Department of Natural Resource Sciences. She holds a MSc in Bioresource Engineering from McGill University. She has worked as an environmental scientist and engineer to evaluate the ecological impact of the mining industry in vulnerable regions to climate variability such as the Arctic. She has experience in environmental and waste management systems. Her research interests are centered around political ecology, world-system theory, and international trade. She is particularly revisiting the notion of world-system analysis from the perspective of flows of matter and energy, thermodynamics and ecological footprint. In her collaboration with L4E, she investigates the question of ecologically unequal exchange and its acceleration via trade agreements and financialization.
