I am a PhD Researcher researcher at James Hutton Institute and Cranfield University. I completed my MSc in Water Science, Policy and Management in 2015 at the University of Oxford. During my MSc, I conducted a dissertation project on women’s experience of water scarcity in the Thar Desert. Before starting my PhD, I worked as a Research Assistant on a water security project for the REACH project at the University of Oxford, working on small town water supply in Ethiopia. I have also worked within Research Funding and Facilitation. 



I am doing my PhD on community perspectives with wastewater services in rural Scotland. My PhD explores the potential to implement a co-production approach to decision-making for rural services, particularly wastewater. My current research interests are on incorporating local knowledge and engaging non-experts in water and wastewater issues. I am also particularly interested the coproduction of knowledge for rural service provision and alternative forms of governance and management of rural systems. 

Past research

My past research has largely been focussed on water security, particularly the relationship between gender, water security and poverty, with a focus on India and Ethiopia. I have also conducted research on local knowledge and traditional water management systems in both India and Oman.
