Research Interests

With a background in the natural and social sciences, I have interests in interdisciplinary and policy relevant research on environment and development, in particular environmental governance, natural resources management and climate change (both adaptation and mitigation). At UEA, I coordinate CoCooR project, an interdisciplinary cross-country project that focuses on an analysis of conflicts and co-operation over REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) in Nepal, Mexico and Vietnam. I am also involved in ASSAR (Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions) project with a focus on vulnerability and adaptation in some of the driest zones of East Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda). Prior to my current role, I was involved in a policy research for the Scottish Government, looking into the distributional and equity impacts of climate change mitigation and adaptation. In particular, the research used a ‘climate justice’ frame and explored how equity and justice considerations relate to the performance of climate change policies and plans in Scotland (including their potential conflicts, synergies, and differential impacts).
