Her work combines her experience of remote fieldwork with her passion for community-based participatory research. Her doctoral research is based in Moxico, a vast inland region in eastern Angola. In collaboration with local communities, her project will be the first academic account of its history, human geography, and cultural heritage.Beyond her PhD, Madeleine has several ongoing collaborations with scientists and conversation projects. She is passionate about finding ways to centre non-Western knowledge, feminist methods and combatting the legacy of colonial and extractivist research.
