Rights Lab Senior Research Fellow in Modern Slavery and Sustainable Ecosystems, Faculty of Social Sciences
I am a Research Fellow for the Rights Lab (A Beacon of Excellence) - housed within the 'Ecosystems and the Environment Programme' - with my work focusing on the environmental impacts of modern slavery in a number of ecosystems. I completed a BSc in Geography (2013-2016), and a PhD in Geography (funded by the Rights Lab, as part of the 'Data and Measurement Programme' supervised by Professors' Doreen Boyd and Kevin Bales) (2016-2020) both at the University of Nottingham. My research now focuses on a mixed methods approach to understanding the modern slavery-environment nexus, particularly via the application of remotely sensed data. Prior research has focused on a number of sectors including brick kilns, fish-processing, and fishing. My current research interests lie in the research of the impact of the nexus within the forestry sector and associated industries.

My current research primarily focuses on the connection between modern slavery and tree loss, following a global assessment undertaken as part of my PhD. My current work in this area focuses around Brazil and other forest environments.
Current projects I am also involved with focus on the sustainability of food supply from a labour perspective, the impacts of climate change on forced marriage, and the quantification of the modern slavery-environment nexus.
My PhD focused on the intersection of modern slavery and environmental degradation on three sectors and three varying scales: fish-processing (local scale), brick kilns (regional scale), and tree loss/forestry (global scale). The thesis primarily assessed this impact via the application of remote sensing and was a case study example of the connections that can be made to investigate the impacts of modern slavery.
