Dr Saskia Vermeylen

Dr Saskia Vermeylen is a socio-legal property scholar, with an eclectic range of research areas, from how Indigenous Peoples approach property, to ownership in works of African Futurism and science fiction.

About Saskia Vermeylen

Saskia is a legal expert, but she's not like any legal expert you've ever met.

She is one of a small number of experts in the world looking at the next frontiers in property, from outer space to microbes to the deep sea. She also explores property and ownership through the lens of literature and art, particularly African Futurism, ecocriticism, science fiction, and visual and performative art.

Saskia's wide range of specialisms are reflective of her broad and open approach to the world around her. She has always been interested in getting to know other cultures through traveling, food and reading, and just love to get the wider world. When Saskia's not with us in The Garden discussing the concept of ownership, you're likely to find her growing fruit and veg in her allotment.
