Biography

Having completed a bachelor’s degree in Physical Geography and Political Science from McGill University in Canada, I went on to graduate with distinction from the MSc Global Environmental Change at King’s College London.  My dissertation assessed the impacts of climatic changes on the performance of dams and reservoirs. I then studied Environmental Management as part of an Advanced Master held in China and France, which led me to work with Veolia Environment on the definition of integrated water management strategies for the city of Singapore. In the months prior to the start of my PhD, I participated in natural hazard research at the EDF Energy R&D Centre in London.

Key Research Interests

PhD Title: Modelling future flood risk for adaptation planning of coastal and inland flooding

Taking Britain’s largest protected wetland – the Broads – as a case study, my PhD project looks into the implications of adaptation options on compound flood risk and salinity changes. My research moreover explores the interdisciplinary processes of knowledge co-production for decision-making. The objective of my work will be to provide recommendations on integrated flood management and adaptation policies in coastal regions.

My areas of interest include the impacts of climate change, adaptation, natural hazards and water management.
