University of Oxford, School of Geography & the Environment, DPhil (PhD) student (Current)
ExperienceCurrently I am a DPhil student in Oxford focusing upon climate change resilience in the School of Geography & the Environment. I've worked professionally in sustainable international development, international human rights, disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation and emergency response and recovery, as well as policy and advocacy actions. I greatly enjoy working with young people through a process of learning, facilitating conditions which enable them to develop strong analytical, critical thinking skills, improve their study habits and organizational skills, and become equipped to approach any learning challenge at any stage of their lives.
