My doctoral research that began in September 2011 builds on the research of my department colleagues on people making migration decisions in the face of changing climate, environment and hazard patterns. It also draws from my work in the media and with humanitarian groups.
Thesis: Migration, climate change and images of place in Bangladesh
BSc (Botany, Zoology, Chemistry) - University of Kerala
MSt (Forced Migration) - University of Oxford
My research probes how changing enviornment and hazard patterns influence migration decisions of villagers in Bangladesh. Set mainly in the coastal and delta context, it tests to what extent climatic stresses and shocks, risk perceptions and place-identity influence migration patterns. It mixes quantitative and qualitative methods: surveys, Multilevel Modelling, Ethnography and Q.
