I work as an associate with SEI Oxford and have just finished a PhD at King's College London looking at factors influencing the effectiveness of ecosystem restoration, and the chanllenges posed by climate change. I have been involved in weADAPT since the very beginning editing content, building relationships and getting feedback from users on how to improve the site. I'm very excited by how much weADAPT now offers!
My interests are in the use of climate information to support adaptation, and in particular how to make information accessible in a credible and usable way. I am also very interested in developing work at the intersection of ecosystem restoration and adaptation, and the role restoration can play in ecosystem-based adaptation.
At SEI I currently have a focus on training and capacity-building, but have also recently worked on screening donor portfolios for climate risks, and innovative approaches to visualising the networks of organisations working on adaptation.
Visualizing connections: Mapping the landscape of adaptation research and practice through weADAPT
This working paper describes a collaborative project to visually map climate change adaptation research and networks based on semantic tagging in weADAPT.
