I study the intersection of climate and migration. Specifically, I analyze the role that drought plays in the displacement of people from Central America's Dry Corridor and how coastal communities globally are likely to retreat from rising sea levels. Relating the evidential links between a changing climate and human displacement to pressing global governance priorities is also a central focus of my work.
