Research Output per year
I am a PhD student researching on eco-grief, climate change, community resilience and water practices in Malawi.
My PhD explores community experiences of changing water practices in Malawi, focusing on the environmental and people factors that are causing strain on communities, uncover the adaptive capacities of communities in the face of unreliable access to water, and determine how communities could be supported to increase capacity to deal with climate change.
The research will draw on ethnographic methods to explore these problems in relation to community and individual wellbeing under the frameworks of climate justice and social justice. Furthermore, I will be exploring existing policies and strategies employed in Malawi to deal with changing access to water with a focus on communities’ role in the process.
