Research interests

Sophie’s research examines how social-political inclusion/exclusion and forms of citizenship shape geographies of disaster risk and climate change adaptation, developing social contracts as a lens on evolving relations of trust and expectation in risk governance.

She works mainly in South Asia and the Caribbean, and is currently Co-I in the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) Urban Disaster Risk hub 'Tomorrow's Cities'.
