Alex Greene is a PhD student with the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), based at the University of French Guiana. His interdisciplinary approach uses ethnobotany as a lens to examine an array of issues around human-environmental relations, such as spiritual environmental beliefs and practices, multispecies relations, and food systems. His background is in environmental education, field ornithology and botany, and he has completed research projects on sacred and community forests in Nepal, human-elephant relations among the Karen in Thailand, and plant knowledge among the Raglai of Vietnam. His ongoing PhD project looks at how the circulation of plants has helped Hmong communities adapt to life in the global diaspora.
