Harri is a third-year PhD Student in the Department of Geography, focusing his research the environmental change over time of Cambodia's capital city, Phnom Penh. His research interests are of the ways in which resource flows interact with water, 'Nature' and a rapidly changing urban environment.
Through exploration of historical maps of land-use change, participatory interviews with urban poor communities, and ethnographic exploration of canals and wetlands, his thesis contributes to an exploration of resource flows and human impacts of urbanisation. By tracing flows of floodwater, sewage, and garbage his work explores the interlinkages between urban development trajectories, and the direct impact on urban dwellers' livelihoods, sanitary conditions, and rights to the city.
Harri's research has incorporated ethnographic and participatory interviews to experience how people interact with Phnom Penh's sewage infrastructure, and mapping using GIS software to reflect geodata collected in the field and from crowdsourced datasets, as well as participatory maps created by urban poor communities.
