Dr Luciana Mendes BarbosaLecturer in Sociology (Climate Change)
I’m a human geographer whose research specializes in the politics of climate change, socio-environmental conflicts and development projects in the Global South. My research is focused on understanding the intersection between precarity, (climatic) hazards, and forms of resistance to injustices in the contemporary wave of forced displacements in urban informal settlements in Brazil. I hold a MSc in International Relations (Pontificia Universidade Católica de Minas Gerais – PUC-Minas) and BA (Hons) in Geography (Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais – UFMG). Before joining the PhD, I worked as Governmental Affairs Manager at the State of Minas Gerais, Brazil with a focus on environmental policies.
