Tessa Minter

Tessa Minter has been studying the human ecology of Philippine hunter-gatherers since 2002, focusing on the adaptation of livelihood strategies in response to environmental and social change.

Her work is based on long-term fieldwork among the Agta of the Northern Philippines, in which she combines classical ethnographic methods with the collection of systematic records on demography, time-allocation, hunting- and fishing success, food intake, health and child-care.

She also supervises PhD students working on food and water security in Indonesian and Philippine hunter-gatherer populations, and teaches environmental anthropology and development sociology at the BA and MA level.
