Dr Emiline Smith is a Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Glasgow. She is a member of the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research, the Trafficking Culture research consortium, and the Global Inititative Against Transnational Organized Crime. She is also a Fellow at the Centre for Criminology at the University of Hong Kong. Prior to becoming a Lecturer at the University of Glasgow, Emiline obtained a PhD in Criminology at the University of Glasgow and worked as a Lecturer in Criminology at the University of Liverpool in Singapore. Emiline’s research concerns the trafficking of cultural and natural resources, such as antiquities and wildlife. Her research primarily focuses on Asia; she has done fieldwork in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Thailand. She explores how and why participants take part in illicit transnational trades, and how urban settings, especially so-called ‘global cities’, facilitate such trade. She is further interested in plastic waste disposal and its impact on marine environments.
