As a student in the MSc Climate Studies program at Wageningen University and Research (WUR) in the Netherlands, I am passionate about climate adaptation and resilience, as well as the governance, knowledge exchange, and institutional contexts that shape adaptation narratives and actions. I'm particularly interested in how power dynamics and structural contexts interact with these to help/hinder bottom-up integration of multi-stakeholder perspectives and useful knowledge into participatory approaches, to influence the efficacy of climate actions. I am eager to contribute to better climate adaptation by utilizing my qualitative and quantitative analysis skills, policy research, and leadership experiences. My long-term career goal is to identify, communicate, and implement practical, inclusive, and integrative solutions to address climate change and achieve multiple goals across climate adaptation, mitigation, and development.
I have previous experience in climate adaptation research on a global scale, working for the UNFCCC on reviewing MEL frameworks for the impact of knowledge for climate adaptation in different countries and contexts, and have developed good interpersonal skills through internships, developing materials for effective communication and learning, and successfully working with stakeholders and team members on multiple projects.
