Jaskiran is a political ecologist with an interdisciplinary background in the Social Sciences. She holds a bachelor’s degree in History and Spanish from University College London (UCL), a MSc in Latin American Studies from the University of Oxford and a PhD in Development Studies from UCL. For her PhD she researched the contestation between industrial farming methods and agroecology in two Zonas de Reserva Campesino, Colombia to understand how these rural communities construct alternative sustainable development and the obstacles they face. This thesis included field research in rural Colombia, short-ethnography and interviews with multiple-stakeholders from campesinos, to academics, civil servants and politicians. Jaskiran also earned an Associate Fellowship with the Higher Education Academy in recognition of her university level teaching experience.
