Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, Laura completed her BSc at Wits in Zoology, Ecology and Law before moving to Oxford where she did an MSc in Nature, Society and Environmental Policy and a DPhil on the private sector’s adaptive capacity to climate change impacts on the food system. Following her DPhil, she was a Giorgio Ruffolo fellow in sustainability science at Harvard’s Kennedy School before starting a post-doc at UCT where she worked on orphan crop innovation for transformation in the food system. Laura’s current position is as a researcher at the Centre for Complex Systems in Transition at Stellenbosch University where she is running the sustainability transformations theme under the SIDA- funded GRAID project. Laura has done research in South Africa, Brazil, Colombia, Mozambique, Nigeria and Kenya and she is passionate about allowing the diversity of developing country stories to be heard. She is also very keen on exploring alternative methods in sustainability research.
