Kingston School of Art
PhD Researcher
Kingston Upon Thames, UK
I am currently undertaking a part-time Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Climate Change Adaptation Measures at Kingston School of Art.

My PhD research looks at rain gardens within the wider scope of climate change neighbourhoods, trying to see how they offer the opportunity for citizens to work with nature and participate in the way water is managed in our towns and cities.
By considering wider aspects of sustainability, sustainable development and environmental policies, this research seeks to uncover whether changes in environmental policies, away from incentivisation and taxation to more morally-based policies, coupled with improved engagement methodologies, support for social learning by building upon existing knowledge frameworks and increased citizen participation, would shift our perceptions towards LISUD as an alternative sustainable approach to climate change adaptation increasing community resilience.

I am seeking to understand more about communication data and the role of data visualisations.

I am also a member of Transition Cambridge in the UK and seek to look at ways of empowering communities to undertake greater community participation as communities of practice.
