My Research Projects

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Geography & Geology at the University of the West Indies, Mona Campus. My academic training and career aspirations are centred on a strong foundation of interdisciplinarity and transformational science, which is reflected in my research agenda on climate change adaptation and food systems in Small Island Developing States (SIDS). My science-policy work involves multiple appointments to intergovernmental scientific assessment teams. These include the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), the World Ocean Assessment (WOA), and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). For IPBES, I am currently serving as a Coordinating Lead Author for the global assessment of the interlinkages among biodiversity, water, food, and health (the nexus assessment) (2022 – 2024). For the WOA, I am a member of the Group of Experts currently leading the third assessment cycle (2021-2025). For the IPCC, I served as a Lead Author for the recently published Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) on Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability. I also served as a Lead Author for the IPCC's Special Report on Climate Change and Land, published in 2019. I currently serve as an Associate Editor for three journals - Climate Risk Management, Climate and Development, and the International Journal of Climate Change Strategies and Management. I also serve on several technical and scientific committees of regional and national significance.
