    Speaker Bio:

    I am currently pursuing my PhD (2013-2016) at the University of Manchester. Prior to my PhD I was a research associate (2010-2013) at Brooks World Poverty Institute at the University of Manchester on DFID funded project called ‘Capturing the Gains’  and the Sustainable Cocoa supply chain consortium, wherein I worked on building inclusive models to integrate smallholders and workers into mainstream supply networks, livelihood diversification strategies and food security, inclusive wealth measures, assets and also deconstructing impacts of climate variability/shocks on value chains, quantitatively and qualitatively, amongst other research. Between 2007-2010, I worked as a commodity analyst for a multinational trading organization. I was given the portfolio of oilseeds/oils and this gave me the opportunity to interact with a global network of stakeholders – from farmers at field level to retail houses and manufacturers in many countries. I also spent a year on carbon markets and climate based financial instruments including electricity futures and weather derivatives. I have an undergraduate degree in finance and masters in environmental management from the University of Manchester.
