My role is equally divided between two interdisciplinary initiatives: the Habitable Air research project and the Global Research Programme on Inequality (GRIP).

Here's an overview of my responsibilities:

Habitable Air Project: Urban Inequality in the Time of Climate Change

  • Manage research administration for the NOK 11.8 million Research Council of Norway-funded initiative.
  • Project manage the initiative exploring the critical relationship between urban inequality, political divisions, air pollution, global warming, and climate change.
  • Develop protocols and support services for field researchers in South Africa, Germany, and the United States to ensure high-quality, timely completion of research activities within budget.

Global Research Programme on Inequality (GRIP)

  • Lead the development of communication strategies, manage outreach efforts, and engage with stakeholders both internal and external to the University.
  • Collaborate with the International Science Council and partner institutions, including the global affiliate network, to address rising inequalities in all world regions through a commitment to epistemological openness, methodological diversity, and the co-production of knowledge.
