Personal profile

Research interests

I'm a Research Fellow at the Centre for Climate Justice. A human geographer by training, I'm particularly interested in the concepts of climate justice, adaptation to climate change, and vulnerability, and my research is firmly embedded within critical social theory (post-politics, neo-Marxism, feminism, postcolonial theory, and queer studies). Most recently, I have become interested in how intersectional identities affect people's experiences of climate change.

    

I obtained my PhD in Human Geography from the University of Manchester, with my thesis investigating the post-politics of adaptation to climate change in sub-Saharan Africa. Before that, I received an MA in Politics and International Relations from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, and an MSc in Environmental Studies from California State University, Fullerton. I also worked as a Project Associate for the Center for Sustainable Energy in San Diego, California and have activist experience with organizations such as 350.org, Amnesty International, Sierra Club, and Greenpeace.
