Departmental Lecturer and Course Director MSc in Water Science, Policy and Management, University of Oxford

I am a social scientist who specialises in normative and analytical aspects of governance, especially with regard to water and climate change adaptation. My research interests include (multilevel) environmental governance, water governance, climate change adaptation, governance of societal transformation processes, property rights and the governance of natural resources, sustainability and ecological economics. I am particularly interested in why and how power relationships, institutions and knowledge shape the governance of water and climate change.

I am passionate about public engagement with research. I have organised two successful drought walks in Birmingham and London, walking and discussing issues of drought and water scarcity with stakeholders at places where drought happened. A subsequent poster about the two walks won the Best Poster Award at the 2019 European Society for Ecological Economics conference.
