Personal profile

Research interests

To date, my research has centred on the political ecology of water use in remote 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. I am interested in elucidating the diverse priorities of people in their everyday livelihood practices and the consequences for water use and what this means for their responses to changing water policies.

In 2019, I worked 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.

Currently, I am working as part of 'FARMS-SAFE: Future-proofing Antibacterial resistance Risk Management Surveillance and Stewardship in the Argentinian Farming Environment', a £1.25 million grant from the Global AMR Innovation Fund, managed by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and UK Aid, administered by BBSRC.
