Leila Harris is currently an Assistant Professor at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability (IRES) and the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies at UBC. She is trained as a socio-cultural and political geographer with interest in resource issues and inequalities, gender, and developing contexts. Her research to date has focused primarily on water politics in the Middle East/ Turkey, water governance in the Global South, and gender dimensions of resource use and access. Given her focus on inequalities, her work is also strongly connected to work in political ecology, environmental justice, and gender studies.
