Angela Kronenburg García holds a PhD from Wageningen University (2015) and a degree in cultural anthropology from Leiden University. She has worked on various positions at Leiden University, the African Studies Centre Leiden, Utrecht University and UCLouvain. Her research has focused on land-use change, political ecology and access, land and forest tenure, natural-resource conflict, political leadership, and emerging land-use frontiers. She has carried out long-term ethnographic research among the agro-pastoral Loita Maasai in Kenya. Her most recent work has focused on northern Mozambique, where she studied the investors of large-scale agricultural and forestry investments, and followed public consultations for mining-induced resettlement. She is currently a postdoc researcher in a research project from the University of Padua on wetlands in drylands for which she will conduct fieldwork in Mozambique and Sudan. She is based in Maputo, Mozambique.
