Dr Alison Stowell

Lecturer

Research Overview

Alison's research interests focus on social and organisational responses to the challenges of waste. Specific areas of interest include: Organisation and management responses, waste policy, negotiating values attributed to waste and waste as a particular type of work. Although, for the past 10 years her preoccupation has focused on electronic waste (e-waste e.g. computers, laptops, mobile telephones etc), her curiosity relates to most forms.
