Profile

I am Assistant Professor of Humanitarian Aid and Disaster Governance. For over fifteen years I have studied and worked in humanitarian aid, disaster governance, and environmental sociology, especially in conflict-affected and vulnerable settings. I lecture on humanitarian action, disaster risk reduction, methodology, and safety and security for in-situ/fieldwork research. At the moment, I have a particular interest in researching the compound effects and challenges of climate change, protracted crises, and displacement for humanitarian aid and disaster response and disaster risk reduction (DRR). I am also interested in the ethical, safety, and security aspects of research.

I serve as a Board Member of the International Humanitarian Studies Association (IHSA) and as convener of the Peace and Ecology in the Anthropocene commission at the International Peace Research Association (IPRA). I also serve as a reviewer in leading journals and often take research, monitoring and evaluation, and advisory consultancy work. This work allows me to develop action research on a regular basis, so I can stay close to the experiences and processes taking place in my fields of study.

Before my current position at ISS, I worked as a researcher, project manager, and consultant with local and international NGOs, the United Nations, Governmental organisations, and in the private sector. I have also been an academic, lecturer, and visiting professor at various universities; led humanitarian aid groups; and researched in-situ the occurrence of several conflicts, crises, and natural hazard-related disasters. As a researcher and practitioner, my work has taken me to multiple complex and disaster-prone places, such as Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Chile, Jordan, Peru, South Sudan, Uganda, and Yemen.

I hold a PhD in Humanitarian Aid and Disaster Governance from the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) of Erasmus University Rotterdam, an MA in Environmental Studies from the University of Melbourne, and a BA in Sociology and BA in Political Science from the A. Hurtado University. I also hold diplomas in Quantitative Multivariable Analysis, Environmental Impact Assessment, Public Policy, and Sustainable Development. Regarding applied research, I have experience and training in the development of fieldwork in hostile, complex and remote areas, with certifications by the United Nations, Red Cross, Centre for Safety and Development, GCORE, and RedR.
