Johannes Lenhard

Centre Coordinator and Post-doctoral Research Associate, Max Planck Centre Cambridge, University of Cambridge

I am an ethnographer of inequality in the West currently based at the Max Planck Centre Cambridge for the Study of Ethics, the Economy and Social Change. Having worked towards a better understanding of homeless people in London and Paris for my PhD, I have recently started a new research project on venture capital investors with fieldwork in Munich, Berlin, London, San Francisco and New York. My writing has appeared in academic peer-reviewed journals as well as journalist outlets (AEON, Vestoj, King's Review among others).
