Alice is researching indigenous frameworks for understanding climate change in Tibet and the Himalayas, and plans to conduct ethnographic fieldwork in Nepal and India after her time at CSaP. One goal of this research is to better understand how local and/or indigenous climate knowledge should be utilised within regional and global climate policy. Religion also plays an important role in her research, with Buddhist and indigenous landscape deities occupying the central focus.

Alice has completed a Master’s in South Asian Area Studies at SOAS, University of London, where she studied Hindi language alongside South Asian religions and cultures. She pursued her BA in Geography at Cambridge between 2015 and 2018.

Beyond her studies, Alice continues to learn Hindi. She runs a vegan food group, and enjoys camping, kayaking and hillwalking within the UK.
