Providing historically-grounded approaches to enduring geopolitical problems.


Alisa recently completed her PhD in the Archaeology Department/Cambridge Heritage Research Centre. Her thesis, titled ‘The Last Elephant Catchers: (In)Visible Indigenous Heritage in Thailand’, examines the relationship between environmental policy and the endangerment of Indigenous traditions, working with the Kui community in Northeast Thailand.

Alisa obtained a First-Class BA (Hons) in Human, Social and Political Science and an MPhil in Archaeological Heritage and Museums, both from the University of Cambridge. Before commencing her PhD, she interned with the United Nations Development Programme in Thailand and has continued to consult for environmental and development organisations in the region.
