Geography and the Environment (2014 cohort)
My DPhil research in the School of Geography and the Environment focuses on natural resources management in Greenland and explores challenges to public involvement in decision-making. I am particularly interested in local perceptions of current decision-making processes, the use of public meetings, as well as views on citizen engagement and political participation more generally.
In 2015 and 2016, I spent nine months in West Greenland to carry out fieldwork for this project.
Prior to undertaking the DPhil, I completed the MPhil in Development Studies at the Oxford Department for International Development (thesis on Hopes and Expectations in Greenland’s Emerging Oil Economy). I also hold a B.A. in International Economics and Development from the University of Bayreuth.
