My broad interests in research and teaching are in the politics of international development, climate change policy, international political economy, and environmental change.


I completed my PhD at the Global Development Institute at the University of Manchester in 2016 and assumed the position of Lecturer in International Politics in 2017.  My doctoral research examined the cultural political economy of carbon markets - an international policy response to climate change - with fieldwork in Europe and India. 

Prior to joining the University of Manchester, I worked as a Research Assistant at the Institute of Development Studies on issues of low carbon and climate resilient development. My previous degrees are an MSc in Climate Change and Development from the University of Sussex, and an Honours degree in Politics and Philosophy from the University of Glasgow.
