    Research interests

    Current research:
    I am currently studying climate change adaptation in Himalaya, as part of the project “Himalayan Connections: Melting Glaciers, Sacred Landscapes and Mobile Technologies in a Changing Climate” (HimalConnect) funded by the Research Council of Norway.

    The project explores the historical and current perceptions and responses to environmental hazards in two Buddhist communities in the Himalaya, and how they change with the introduction of new connectivities and new modes of governance. Particular focus is given to how knowledge about such management strategies can be scaled out and made relevant across the different decision-making levels of environmental management.
