My research is focused on understanding the opportunities and challenges that arise for development in the current context of climate change. Over the past 12 years, I have conducted several extended fieldwork-based research projects that have explored local adaptations to climate change, especially as manifest in migration decision-making, gender inequities, food security, and the connection between climate change, changes in land use and changes in livelihoods. While I have conducted this work principally in Ghana and Malawi, I have fieldwork experience in the Caribbean and India as well.
The study of the social dimensions of development and climate change engages issues of such complexity as to require engagement with expert knowledge in multiple disciplines. My educational background represents an effort to grasp multiple disciplinary perspectives on such issues as vulnerability and resilience. At various points in my research and fieldwork, I have teamed with economists, climatologists, historians, political scientists and archaeologists. I have also worked in interesting and productive multidisciplinary teams as a lead author of the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment and UNEP’s Fourth Global Environment Outlook.
