Personlig profil


Jelena Salmi is an anthropologist focused on urban development and environmental degradation in contemporary India. She earned her Ph.D. in ethnology and anthropology from the University of Jyväskylä in 2019. In her Ph.D. work, she explored relations between the state and resettled slum-dwellers in the context of large-scale urban development projects in Ahmedabad.

Salmi currently works as a postdoctoral researcher in the research project Sustainable Livelihoods and Politics at the Margins: Environmental Displacement in South Asia funded by the Academy of Finland. Her research explores the climate change-human mobility nexus with an ethnographic focus on Koli fishing communities living in Madh Island in northern Mumbai. She analyzes how Koli fishers perceive environmental changes and how they devise strategies of adaptation and alternative livelihoods in a situation where fish stocks have depleted considerably and plastic waste pervades the ocean. She is conducting ethnographic fieldwork in Mumbai until May 2020.
