Marta Conde holds a degree in Agricultural Engineering (UPC) and a Masters in Ecological Economics (UAB). Marta lived and worked in London as a consultant for six years before working in Peru with a local organization protecting communities impacted by mining. She is currently undertaking a Doctorate. Her present research is focused on uranium mining and the implications of the current nuclear and uranium expansion. Using political ecology and political economy as a framework, she is relating the social perception of risks with the environmental and socioeconomic changes occurring in her first case study, Namibia. Her broad interests are the impacts and conflicts endured by developing countries caused by the 'cost shifting successes' of material and energy consumption in developed economies and its implications and contribution to the concepts of environmental justice and in broader terms degrowth.
