I study the political economy of disasters and international development. I live in the UK and focus much of my current work on evaluating development programs locally and in Sub-Saharan Africa. I examine programs designed to build resilience and adapt to climate change, as well as social programs aimed at improving the lives of underserved populations (isolated persons, single mothers, victims of domestic abuse, homeless), and their effects on community resilience, political trust, public opinion, and more.
