Key facts:

I am a social and development geographer, specialising in the study of migration, movement and displacement of people and things. My work is characterised by an environment theme, including climate change, agricultural development and food systems. Much of my empirical research has taken place in the Maldives and Mozambique.

I have a DPhil in Geography from the University of Oxford on development processes in flood-affected resettlement communities. Prior to joining the University of Reading, I worked as a Consultant for the international firm Environmental Resources Management (ERM) and then as a Research Officer at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS).

My research has been funded by the ESRC, DFID, Australian Research Council, Norwegian Research Council and British Academy. I have carried out consultancy for a number of development agencies, including GIZ, Save the Children, Oxfam and WWF. I supervise PhD students funded by the ESRC, Commonwealth Scholarship Commission and Leverhulme Trust.
