Dr Monica Bernal Llanos holds a PhD in Development Planning from University College London (UCL).

Her main research interests are climate change and systemic racism, as the two major (and interconnected) ills of humanity. Monica’s doctoral studies focused on the co-production of knowledge and politics for climate change adaptation in Colombia, and she’s also conducted empirical research on public perceptions on the history of teaching and research of eugenics at UCL.

Monica has worked in Bogota, Lima and London, using participatory action research whilst working hand in hand with disenfranchised communities as well as with government officials, the private sector and members of the civil society.
