I am a Liu Scholar, SESYNC Graduate Research Fellow, and Governor General Gold Medalist completing my doctoral research at The University of British Columbia’s Institute for Resources, Environment, and Sustainability. As a political-ecologist, I explore how formal and informal institutions disproportionately produce environmental risk under a changing climate. My doctoral research examines the natures of drought-aid in central India and the extent to which such interventions contribute to equitable and sustainable protections for rural life and livelihood.
