Emily supports the Science Team under the IMPACT project. Her scientific interests revolve around climate change adaptation and vulnerability and the linkages between science and policy in vulnerable regions, especially Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean.
Since September 2019, Emily has worked as a doctoral student in the junior research group EmBARK, a consortium project between Humbolt University in Berlin and Climate Analytics. Her work within the research group focuses on the assessment of barriers to adaptation in the Caribbean and West Africa.
Before joining Climate Analytics, she worked with Engineers Without Borders (UK) in Tanzania and the Gesellschaft für International Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in Vietnam, mainly on renewable energy projects. Emily holds a Master’s degree in Environmental Engineering and Sustainable Infrastructure from KTH, the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (Sweden).
