Originally from Vermont, Delilah holds a M.A. in Environmental Law and Policy from Vermont Law School, and a M.Sc. in Environmental Anthropology from Yale University.
Broadly, she is interested in the political and phenomenological aspects of expertise and time in climate change adaptation throughout Oceana.
Delilah's research focuses on ecosystem-based adaptation projects in Fiji where she considers the ways in which forward-focused and expert forms of adaptation are entangled with notions of nostalgia and traditional ecological knowledge to produce governance through and of vulnerability.
