Dr Jessica Chelekis
Lecturer Sustainability Global Value Chains


I am a Lecturer in Sustainability and Global Value Chains. My PhD is in Anthropology from Indiana University; my dissertation is based on ethnographic research on gender, direct sales and household economies in the lower Brazilian Amazon. My current research focuses on different aspects of culture and sustainability in modern market systems.

Prior to joining Brunel I was a postdoctoral fellow at University of Southern Denmark, where I helped develop and teach on the Market and Management Anthropology Programme. My research on consumer culture and critical regionalities has been published in Marketing Theory, and Research in Consumer Behaviour. My work on direct sales among women in the Brazilian Amazon appears in Journal of International Management and Economic Anthropology, and my work on developing markets can be found in Journal of Marketing Management and Journal of Macromarketing.
