About me

I am a Fellow in International Political Economy at LSE, teaching courses in international political economy and environmental politics. My primary research interests lie in (eco)feminist analyses of, and approaches to, global climate change politics. My doctoral thesis examined the political strategy (both rhetorical and procedural) of the Women and Gender Constituency (WGC) in UN Climate Change. This research offers a comprehensive history of gender as a political issue and feminist organising in UN Climate Change, and offers theoretical insights to including the natural world in intersectional praxis.

Prior to joining the International Relations Department at LSE, I was a lecturer in the Politics Department at the University of Manchester, where I also completed my PhD in 2020. Previous to that, I studied my MSc in Environmental Geography at the University of Amsterdam, where I graduated Cum Laude. It was here that I began researching climate change politics through a feminist lens which was the impetus for pursuing my PhD.

My interests outside of work include salsa dancing, photography, and spending time with friends.
