Israel is a Research Consultant at PRD, with interests in cities, resource use and management, and sustainable development.
Prior to PRD, Israel undertook a three-month internship at the University College London (UCL) Institute for Global Prosperity. During his time there, he worked with citizen social scientists (CSS), assisted in organising conferences, and conducted interviews with council officers, and CSS.
In 2019, he graduated with an MSc in Sustainable Resources: Economics, Policy, and Transitions from the Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources, UCL. His studies as a postgraduate provided him with knowledge of the circular economy, renewable and non-renewable resources, and environmental policy.
In 2018, he graduated with a BSc in Geography from Oxford Brookes University. During his BSc, his interest in sustainability grew from undertaking the module: Recycling, Resource, and Waste Management, leading him to conduct a research project exploring the impacts of cocoa production on the natural environment and smallholder farmers in Asamankese, Ghana.
Israel is currently supporting a variety of projects at PRD with a focus on community engagement.
