I am a doctoral researcher funded by the Doctoral Training Alliance (DTA) Future Societies. My PhD project explores the relationship between water-related environmental change and mobility in Newham, London. Through deeply embedded and mobile qualitative fieldwork (including living and volunteering in, and moving through, Newham), I hope to shed light on how issues including street flooding, river contamination and waterfront regeneration impact the mobilities of local residents.

With a special focus on justice, I hope to explore how the environment-mobility nexus unfolds unevenly across urban land- and waterscapes; how politics and infrastructures past and present play a role throughout; and which solutions communities see fit to mobilise themselves (and protect their right to stay put) in the face of evolving environmental challenges.

I have taught in the following (and welcome invitations to contribute to similar) modules:
- UK Energy and Environment Policy and Law (University College London)
- Environmental Politics: Institutions, Actors and Contested Lives (University of Brighton)
