Mardi Reardon-Smith is an environmental anthropologist and early-career researcher interested in human-environment relations, political ecology, intercultural relationships in settler-colonial contexts, and visual anthropology. She is employed as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation on the ARC-funded project ‘Investigating barriers and pathways to the commercialisation of Aboriginal medicines’. Her doctoral research project, which she is currently reworking into a book manuscript, explores the co-production of environmental knowledges, practices and care in Cape York Peninsula, far northeast Australia, a region of high and highly contested cultural, environmental, and economic values.

I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the stolen-never-ceded lands I live, work, and think on, the Wurundjeri people.
