Research overview

I am a Lecturer in LEC and an ESRC Future Research Leader (2014-16). I am interested in identifying pathways towards sustainable urbanization in tropical forest regions, particularly the Amazon. I have a PhD in inter-disciplinary environmental science from the University of East Anglia and have worked extensively with the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR). My passion for Amazonia spans its people and places, slow boat journeys and governmental census data. I am currently working on new tools to predict the impacts of Amazonian droughts and floods on urban food insecurity.
