Dr Lenka Brunclikova

Teaching Associate

Research Overview

Lenka graduated from the Department of Anthropology, University of West Bohemia, Czech Republic, where she conducted a 4-year research on the social dimension of household waste combining garbology and ethnography. Her research interests include human and waste interaction, informal economic models, local schemes of self-sufficiency and dealing with climate change challenges, and migrant workers’ strategies during the Brexit transition. Growing up in socialist Czechoslovakia, she experienced her childhood without any plastic packaging and PET bottles, hence she is very excited to be part of PPiPL.

Outside of academia, she participates in the South Lakes Action on Climate Change, Kendal, where she volunteers at the Waste into Wellbeing project.
