Geography PhD Candidate, the Rights Lab at the University of Nottingham

Bethany Jackson is a Geography PhD Candidate (supervised by Doreen Boyd and Kevin Bales) in the Rights Lab at the University of Nottingham. She is currently analysing the Asian brick kiln industry using remotely sensed imagery as part of the Rights Lab’s Data Program. Her work on Slavery from Space combines a geospatial practice that has primarily been used for environmental studies, and demonstrates how a wide variety of satellite images and traditional techniques can also be used to help provide answers to the problem of contemporary slavery.
