My research applies comparative case study and longitudinal approaches to investigate the transitional phase(s) to disaster recovery through examining how preparedness, response and resilience building elements are linked, with a focus on warnings systems, emergency shelter and temporary housing, and microinsurance.
I have a background in development research, having previously worked with poverty alleviation surveys in rural sub-Saharan Africa and on microfinance programme evaluation in India.
