My research focuses on understanding the resettlement discourses regarding the policies that are used in implementing settlement programs; what level of community participation is engaged in planning and execution of resettlement and how does resettlement affect people’s livelihoods. My research focuses on Malawi where there are attempts to resettle people due to their yearly exposure to floods which results in loss of personal belongings and life.

SCENARIO Doctoral Student

My research involves looking at the shape and position of the jetstream in order to simplify climate models.


Ecology and Agri-Environmental Research Doctoral Student.

My research is based on soil microorganisms, which has a important role in plant symbioses, and it is a agent of mitigation climate change. I am particularly interested in forest resilience and the new possibilities towards carbon sequestration.


SCENARIO-CASE Doctoral Student

I am researching the effect of dense bands of water vapour within the lower atmosphere (known as Atmospheric Rivers) and their link to UK winter flooding events. I am particularly interested in the effect of catchment characteristics and geographical setting in shaping the response to the large amounts of precipitation bought by such events.

My research is on, “Enhancing Social Resilience and Adaptation to Climate change: A Case Study of Disabled People in Southern Bangladesh”. This inter-disciplinary research will investigate disabled people's vulnerability and social resilience in coastal areas of Bangladesh at risk of flooding. The findings will provide evidence and policy and practice guidance to enhance the social resilience of disabled people in the face of climate change.


COP CAS Manager

I manage the Climate Action Studio and work with the students to facilitate their interactions with COP.
