Introduction

I am an interdisciplinary researcher, writer and project manager working in international development. My aim is to provide information and analysis that promote new opportunities for action. I have specialist experience in environmental governance, infectious diseases, agriculture, and food security. Before academia and development consulting, I produced television and online media, and worked as a journalist and photographer.
