Research Associate, University of Bristol

My research interests centre on the political ecology of water use in campesino communities in South America, particularly the interface and tensions between understandings of water and livelihood practices and international development frameworks for water conservation and management.

Currently working on the NERC-AHRC project PARAGUAS - "How do the Páramos store water? The role of plants and people". PARAGUAS is investigating how people and plants are influencing water storage in páramos areas, which are the source of water for many in Colombia.
