I graduated with a BA Sociology with a Specialism in Gender Studies in 2012 from the University of Warwick, and then went on to study an MA in Gender and International Development. My masters dissertation focused on the political economy of aid becoming more polarised as global security concerns and global trade reform influence the purposes and practice of aid.
I am currently in the second year of my ESRC-funded PhD, exploring gender inequality issues in the access to and control of water as a productive resource for agriculture.
