I am a scholar of urban water resilience and environmental governance. My current research interests include water resilience to climate change impacts—with a focus on natural infrastructure and water management—and evidence-driven policy-making. I have a PhD in Resources, Environment and Sustainability (2018) from the University of British Columbia’s Institute for Resources Environment and Sustainability. In my doctoral work I studied the intersection of water governance, resilience and environmental justice in urban contexts, using multiple qualitative and quantitative methodologies and a case study from Cape Town, South Africa. I also have a Master of Arts degree in Resource Management and Environmental Studies. In my Master’s research I studied water governance and the human right to water in South Africa. I have also worked on water development projects in the Nepalese Himalayas, focused on building irrigation canals and shaping strategies for future community development projects. Currently, I am a Policy Analyst for the Canadian federal government, working on resilient water, stormwater and wastewater management and natural infrastructure.
