I joined Acclimatise after completing an MSc in Environmental Governance at the University of Manchester where I acquired a detailed understanding of UK and international climate change policy. My dissertation investigated the internal governance of climate change networks and how they work to shape policy.

In February 2012 I founded Get Resilient, an online web-magazine publishing articles and insights on the topic of resilience. 

My interest in climate change stems from my experience working on environmental projects in Costa Rica. Since then I have worked within the ‘Adapting to Climate Change’ department at Defra, Friends of the Earth, and for the UK government's advisory body on climate change issues; The Energy and Climate Change Committee. I write on environmental issues and have had work published in the Ecologist magazine. I have also co-authored a research report for the United Nations Institute of Training and Research (UNITAR) and, in 2009, I was part of the UK youth delegation to the Copenhagen climate talks.

I also hold a BA in Geography from the University of Manchester.

Areas of expertise include:

  • Climate change policy;
  • Systems resilience;
  • Climate governance networks;
  • Communicating climate change; and
  • Climate change and conflict.
