Anthropology Ph.D. program.  Entered fall 2012.

Advisors: Stephen Lubkemann and Alexander Dent

Research: Machaqueiro’s research is focused on forest conservation policies conceived internationally and implemented in countries of the Global South. She investigates the circuits of these policies not just in their North-South flows, but also across the South. Her particular interest is in market-based conservation mechanisms such as REDD+, and in the ways through which carbon is conceived and valued as a commodity. She also studies policy-making processes, researching issues of bureaucracy, authority, and language ideologies. Her research is based in Brazil and Mozambique.
