Statement of interest: Trained in anthropology and African studies I am currently interested in how environmental futures are shaped and reconfigured through new forecasting technologies in sub-Saharan Africa.

Geographical/topical area of interest: I have carried out (multi-sited) ethnographic fieldwork in Tanzania, Cameroon and Madagascar. I have mainly been trying to understand how the globally constructed idea of climate change travels and is translated across a distance.
