Her current research, Folded Ocean: Fluid Territories in the Indian Ocean World, investigates the impact of global mobility, transnationalism and environmental change on landscape and settlement around the Indian Ocean.
Dr. Bremner holds a B.Arch from the University of Cape Town and received M.Arch and DSc. Arch degrees from the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.
