I am a Programme Manager with SEI Asia based in Bangkok for the last 6+ years. My work is mainly on issues within the fields of climate change, disaster risk reduction and resilience, with a specific focus on gender and rights-based approaches. I currently oversee a portfolio of projects under SEI Asia’s Clusters on Climate Change, Disasters and Development and Gender, Environment and Development, and coordinate SEI’s global Initiative on Gender Equality, Social Equity and Poverty. I was also previously involved in SEI’s Initiative on Climate Services, where I conducted research on the role of traditional climate knowledge systems in climate change adaptation and resilience building in Southeast Asia.
