Background

I hold a BA (Hons) in Urban Studies and Planning (2015) and an MA in Cities and Global Development (Distinction) (2016) both from The University of Sheffield. These degrees are both accredited by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). I am now undertaking my PhD in the Centre for Doctoral Training in Urban Science within the Warwick Institute for the Science of Cities (WISC), funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

Research

My research interests are in urban planning and resilience. My focus is on the role of urban planning as a tool for developing resilience in the case of extreme weather events, particularly in 'at-risk' coastal cities in the USA.

I am working under the supervision of Professor Jon Coaffee as part of the Resilient Cities Laboratory.
