Headshot of Julia Davies

Julia Davies is a PhD student in the School of Geography and Development and is interested in understanding complex issues at the intersection of urban food security, poverty and climate change in sub-Saharan Africa. Her work forms part of an NSF-funded project focused on the linkages between coupled human-natural systems and across rural-urban continuums in Zambia, Kenya, Botswana and South Africa. Core areas of Julia’s current research include the barriers to urban agriculture and the relationships between social capital, gender and urban food security. Julia received her BSc (Honours) in Environmental and Geographical Science and MSc in Climate Change and Development from the University of Cape Town, South Africa.
