Pei Jiang is a PhD candidate in the Department of Geography at the University of Cambridge. She studies the critical political ecology of the food system and agrarian change. Her PhD focuses on the biopower/biopolitics of the commodification and marketisation of millet seeds in Aohan, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China. Millet has been recognised for its climate resistance and nutritional benefits, as well as its potential to help us move away from the intensive farming of major cereals. Therefore, she is also interested in germplasm resource conservation practices. She completed her BA in Sociology at China Agricultural University and her master’s in Sociology at the Renmin University of China.
