Amelie is a PhD student at the School of Geography and the Environment, at the University of Oxford. Her PhD focuses on the dynamic interplay between flooding, geomorphology and society in Bangladesh. Her research aims to assess, and ultimately quantify, the impact that geomorphic change has on poverty in Bangladesh, and identify how vulnerable communities can be more resilient in the face of future climate change and socio-economic growth. Prior to the PhD, Amelie worked as a water engineer for an engineering consultancy called Buro Happold. During her time at the engineering firm, as well as in her current research, she uses GIS on a daily basis for spatial analyses of social and environmental interactions.
