I am an environmental geographer with a profound interest in human-environment interactions, particularly climate change and variability. I am particularly interested in using a mixed-method approach within an integral theoretical framework to understand adaptation dynamics of socio-ecological systems in the context of climate change. I am currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Geography, Environment and Population (GEP) in the University of Adelaide, South Australia, Australia. My research is focused on examining how Indigenous Knowledge and technologies are utilised in different ethnocultural contexts to resolve climate change risks to mitigate food insecurity among rural households and communities in northern Ghana.
