I have been with IOD PARC since 2020 as part of the Supporting Points of Change in the Aid System portfolio team. I have strong experience in data collection, analysis and visualisation using a range of quantitative and qualitative research methodologies and tools and I lead on the use of MAXQDA as a qualitative analysis tool in the company. During my time with IOD PARC, I have gained insight into complex, multi-dimensional issues including climate change, migration and refugees as well as the UN system, having worked on a range of assignments with multilateral, bilateral and NGO clients.

I have a strong interest in the nexus between climate change, migration and development. During my masters in international research, I focused on climate-induced migration in the Pacific region, examining migration as a climate change adaptation strategy, evaluating community participation in the process and subsequent outcomes on livelihoods, social cohesion and aversion of forced migration. I also took courses in international and refugee law and am fluent in French.
