Hello! My research is underpinned by a postcolonial approach, and I draw on theoretical perspectives across the disciplines of human geography, anthropology, critical development studies, and cultural studies to explore and theorise the situated, lived experiences of disasters among marginalised peoples across the ‘global south’ and ‘global north’. I also raise attention to how a focus on the everyday opens possibilities for more sustainable and equitable disaster risk reduction. My work has principally focused in South America and the Caribbean, but recently expanded to the UK and the Pacific.
