Annemiek Prins is a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer with the Department of Anthropology and Development Studies. She completed her PhD with the University of Aberdeen, focusing on cycle-rickshaw drivers in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Her doctoral dissertation, “Unfixing the City: Rickshaw Mobilities, Modernities and Urban Change in Dhaka”, explores different aspects of contemporary urbanism, including: mobility, informal labour, peripheral urbanization and urban modernity. Her current research project, which is also based in Bangladesh, tries to better understand and situate realities of urbanization as part of the dynamic context of the Bengal delta and looks at the interplay between infrastructure, sand extraction, and environmental change in the wake of the Padma Bridge construction.

Annemiek also serves on the editorial board of the anthropological journal Etnofoor.
