Personal profile


My research focuses on a variety of issues under the broad topics of sustainable development, environmental studies and collective action. As a sustainability scientist, I work interdisciplinarily and combine conservation sciences, political economy and social movement studies to try and understand and identify solutions to sustainable development problems. I am currently working on a four year collaborative research project aimed at building research capacity on farmer organization, mobilization and political opportunity in sub-Saharan Africa, with collaborating research and civil society partners in Zimbabwe, Uganda and Ghana.  I recently worked as post-doctoral fellow for a project investigating concepts, metrics and policies related to the disproportionate impacts of climate change extreme events (DICE), involving collaboration with research institutes in the USA and Bangladesh. I have long worked with the politics and science of coastal managment and restoration.
