CV

As Global Partnerships and Alumni Officer my role is to enable IDS to become more strategic in developing and maintaining partnerships around the world, including with our alumni network. For the past 3 years I have been supporting researchers and knowledge professionals to work with partners on research uptake; to provide capacity support for reflective learning with partners; and to contribute to institutional development in its partnerships work.

With a background in Environment and Development my research interests are in the human-environment relationship particularly linked to climate change, development and natural resource management processes. I am also interested in understanding processes that influence behavioural, organisational and policy change in these contexts.

A place for DFID staff to connect with and learn from fellow country office staff, DFID specialist advisers and technical experts as a basis for creating applied knowledge for dealing with the complexities of climate change in the development arena.
