Kees van der Geest (Netherlands)

Kees van der Geest is a Dutch human geographer, working as a researcher and junior lecturer at the Amsterdam institute for Metropolitan and International Development Studies (AMIDSt) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA). He is specialised in the environmental geography of developing countries. In his work, he is primarily interested in rural livelihood dynamics. Presently he is doing a PhD research about the economic and environmental consequences of rural migration in Ghana. Since a few years, he is also active as a documentary film maker. So far, this has resulted in two short documentaries: Shit and Chicks and Hunt and Play. He hopes it will be possible to combine academics and documentary in the future. When he finishes his PhD, he plans to dedicate more time to film making.
