Research Overview

I am an ESRC-funded doctoral candidate focussing upon 'Decolonising Climate Futures', specifically considering the role of Indigenous Peoples and practices in addressing the climate crisis. I am working to establish how the 'Indigenous Paradigm' might be seen as ‘prefigurative’, that is, representing a fundamental transformation in global climate mitigation and adaptation and in doing so epitomising an alternative imaginary for our climate future.
