Monthly Drink event is a one-hour event hosted online by FinGeo. It brings together early career researchers and PhD students, across finance, geography, and the wider academic community. This is a unique opportunity for all attendees at different stages of their careers to engage with one another in an online supportive event, have an opportunity to ask career-related questions, and get answers in a friendly environment. The event will not be recorded, although a summary based on Q&A will be written and posted on FinGeo Blog page. This is a great way to familiarize ourselves with different career paths we might take.
Janelle Knox-Hayes is the Lister Brothers Associate Professor of Economic Geography and Planning in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at MIT. Her research focuses on the ways in which social and environmental systems are governed under changing temporal and spatial scales as a consequence of globalization. She has studied the political and economic interface of financial markets and environmental systems and how individuals and organizations plan and make decisions under conditions of socio-economic uncertainty. Her latest project examines how social values shape sustainable development. Janelle is the author of numerous journal articles, and two books with Oxford University Press, including Saving for Retirement, and The Cultures of Markets: The Political Economy of Climate Governance.
