University of Oxford
My interdisciplinary background blends nature-based solutions, plant ecology and biology with sustainable food systems expertise. I hold a BSc. in Environment and Food Production, with a minor in International Agriculture from McGill University in Canada, and am currently completing an MSc. at the University of Oxford in Environmental Change and Management. Particularly interested in Latin America, I focused my Masters dissertation research on payments for ecosystems services and indigenous sovereignty in the Peruvian Amazon. Previously, I completed research and internships in Panama, Cuba, Belize, among others, with organizations such as the UN World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD). I am especially well-versed in Permaculture and regenerative agriculture, holding a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) as well as being the founder and president of the McGill Permaculture Club for three years, in addition to the co-founder of the Mac Regenerative Food Hub. I am passionate about using nature-based solutions to contribute to climate change mitigation and adaptation, reversing biodiversity loss and achieving equitable livelihoods for all people.
