Interests and experience

  • security/long-term effects of conflict
  • public health
  • climate policy and governance
  • climate change mitigation

I am a doctoral researcher on the ERC-funded project 'POLIMPACT : Enabling Politically Sensitive Climate Change Impact Assessments for the 21st Century'. I am interested in exploring the effects of governance and security on the evolution of climate policy and its subsequent effects on public health. My interest is to use cross-country analysis and advanced quantitative methods to tackle this question. Additionally, I am interested in using the insights from the work above to predict health outcomes based on the current socio-political and security milieu of a given country.
