PhD Researcher in the Faculty of Education. Drawing on different poststructural theories, she explores the relationality of children and forests from the affective/material/spatial perspective, its implications for the outdoor education research, teaching and learning. Her main areas of interests include place-responsive pedagogy and body-place relations, ethics in multispecies encounters, the role of embodied movement in environmental sustainability. Her work also aims to contribute to rethinking an increasingly anthropocentric notion of forest from the educational and cultural standpoints.
