Maan’s research focuses on the economies, ontologies and politics of the living and material world. It develops new conversations between critical political economy and posthumanism through three arenas of inquiry: urban ecologies, lively capital and biodiversity conservation.
Maan’s current work primarily focuses on urban ecologies, leading a major ERC Horizon 2020 Starting Grant (2018-2023) on which he is the Principal Investigator. Prior to joining Cambridge, Maan was a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the School of Geography and Environment at the University of Oxford, where he also read for a DPhil and an MSc. Prospective MPhil, PhD or Postdoctoral applicants are encouraged to contact Maan by email to discuss possible applications.
