I studied Development Economics at the University of Clermont Ferrand in France, where I acquired a strong background in social science research methods and a specific focus on developing countries settings. There, I started reading and writing about environmental migration, and especially about rural-urban migration due to long term climate change in Malawi. I worked over a year in CartONG as an Information Management and Mobile Data Collection technician.

At the Department of Geography and Regional Research, I now aim to assess the innovative channels through which environmental changes affect population dynamics as part of my doctoral thesis. The work is based on the analysis of long-term migration data from the HDSS demographic monitoring system and combines it with environmental data.
