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, stormwater and wastewater management, and incorporating science advise in decision-making. I have a PhD in Resources, Environment and Sustainability (2018) from the 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 and a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations. In my Master’s research I studied water governance and the human right to water in South Africa. In addition, 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. My research interests also include water ethics and transformative water governance.
