Haleema is a Ph.D. student in Economics and is conducting research with the objective of quantifying and monetizing damages from wildfires in the European Mediterranean. Her focus is on employing economic/environmental valuation methods, specifically stated preference valuation methods, to assess damages in both rural and urban/peri-urban environments. Additionally, her research aims to investigate the impacts of wildfires on human well-being. The ultimate goal of her thesis is to generate outputs that contribute to a better understanding of the intricate relationship between wildfires and society, providing valuable insights for scientists and policymakers.

Prior to this, Haleema studied a BSc in Physical Geography and holds an MSc in Economics and Policy of Energy and the Environment at UCL.
