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.
