Dr Britt Crow-Miller is an Assistant Professor at the School for the Future of Innovation in Society at Arizona State University. Her recent work examines the underlying political-economic agendas driving China's South-North Water Transfer Project, the world's largest water control project to date, which lubricates urban and industrial growth in North China. She also has ongoing projects dealing with scalar politics, STS framings of water infrastructure projects, as well as innovations in sustainable urban water management and collaboration in the American West. Crow-Miller’s research focuses on the question of how power, politics, and technologies work to shape and constrain development pathways and their socio-environmental impacts in China, the Western U.S., and around the world.
She received her Ph.D. in Geography from UCLA in 2013, holds an M.A. from Harvard University in Regional Studies-East Asia, and a B.A. from Bard College.
