Research Interests

The overall aim of my research work is to understand the dynamics between science, knowledge production and policy development in the context of climate change. I wish to explore theoretical and empirical issues related to knowledge interactions, scientific and epistemic resources between climate change expert and non-expert communities across global North and South.

Through the analysis of my fieldwork in Malawi and the engagement with a range of theoretical approaches, including Science and Technology Studies, I will look at how climate change is experienced and interpreted locally and closely entangled with other issues – especially food security, gender and environmental equity.
