Overview

I am an environmental social scientist interested in how people experience environmental risks and adapt to them. My work focuses on the impacts of climate change and adaptation to climate and I work with a range of stakeholders, using multiple methods in my research. A longstanding research interest is place attachment, how people experience changing places and what this means for their wellbeing.

Currently I am working on a Wellcome funded project focusing on the health impacts of climate adaptation strategies. Our project explores how populations respond to the implementation of infrastructure, catchment management and forced relocation as a response to climate risk and we will work in sites in Ireland, England and Ghana.
