I am a Lecturer in Responses to Climate Crises at the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute at the University of Manchester. 

I research vital mobilities -- how goods, such as blood, saline IV solution, and oxygen move from the point of donation/manufacture to the point of care, and in what ways these supply chains are vulnerable to a changing climate.

I am part of an HCRI, UK-Med, and Save the Children-UK initiative, funded by the UK Disasters Emergency Committee, examining how the aid system needs to prepare for the climate emergency. Check out our graphic novella, as well as this Q+A article in Nature.

I co-covene a Mobile Medical Materials working group with  members interested in everything from donated blood to medications used in HIV prevention. Listen to our 'follow the thing' podcast here.

I am on the advisory committee of Doctors within Borders, a Wellcome-funded project examining how mobile populations, such as asylum seekers, access health care. Check out this spoken word poem The vocabulary of neglect by Suhaiyman Manzoor-Khan.
