Lisa Ng is a PhD student in the Ethnic Studies Department at the University of California, Berkeley.  She is interested in exploring the shifting dialectic between race, waste, and technology.  Her research examines how trash is used as a confrontational political tool in various social movements against local and global neoliberal economic policies, and how these techniques of resistance represent new imaginations of futurity and relationality.
