I am a PhD student in the Politics department at the University of Exeter, specializing in international organizations' policymaking process related to environmental issues. Prior to this, I completed my Master's degree in International Politics at Aberystwyth University.

Currently, my research project centres around the World Bank and its policymaking process, with a particular emphasis on environment and knowledge politics. Through my work, I aim to contribute to a better understanding of to what extent different knowledge types are integrated into the World Bank's decision-making and how such knowledge use is influencing strategic policy outcomes of the Bank.

Outside of my academic pursuits, I love to go on long hiking trips and immerse myself in a good novel.
