I am currently a Research Fellow on Inclusive Net Zero at Oxford Net Zero (ONZ) and based at the Institute for Science Innovation and Society (InSIS). I have also been appointed as the Oxford Net Zero Fellow at St John's College.

At ONZ, I lead research on understanding how countries and actors in the Global South are thinking about Net Zero and climate change and will be looking to inform policy debates on how Net Zero can be made more inclusive.

I recently completed a COP26 Fellowship at the Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre (IGDC) at the University of York, where I sought to understand the delivery of climate finance for adaptation and what this means for discussions at the UNFCCC 26th Conference of Parties beyond.

I have also previously worked with the Green Climate Fund (GCF) which is an international climate finance institution, and with Mercy Corps and CARE International which are NGOs. My previous work has focused on Sub-Saharan Africa, but it is now slowly expanding to focus different regions in the Global South.
