Personal profile

Academic Background

My academic background has had an interdisciplinary flavour, applying perspectives from human geography, environmental sciences and economics towards challenges at the nexus of the environment and development. Alongside this I have gained professional experience in teaching and as a financial auditor of UK Government Departments.

I am currently pursuing an ESRC funded 1+3 doctoral studentship motivated by an interest in understanding climate change as a development agenda. Until now this has looked at how climate change is defined as a problem in Tanzania, placing this in the context of transforming state-society relations since independence. Moving forward I plan to undertake an ethnographic study of a climate adaptation intervention. This will seek to contribute to understanding how this global agenda must be translated into specific contexts and the social effects that result.
