Lecturer in Environmental Humanities, UNSW

My research, grounded in political ecology and historical geography, explores the various social, economic and political dimensions that shape environmental access, use, and control in development contexts. Most of my research so far has been located in West Africa – where I have been involved in research projects focused on forest conservation and energy use in rural areas. I have also been involved in research on water governance in Mexico and coal seam gas conflicts in Australia.

Prior to my position at the University of the New South Wales, I have held variety of lecturing/tutoring/research position at universities in Mexico (Universidad Modelo; Universidad Anahuac Mayab) and other universities in Australia (University of Melbourne; University of Queensland). I am also a co-founder of Energy For Opportunity (EFO), a non-government organisation dedicated to the dissemination of renewable energy in West Africa.
