Socio-economic impacts of extreme weather events such as cyclones, storms, floods, and rainfall. I have active research engagements in agriculture and rural development, environmental change, and adaptation strategies. I am also interested in investigating the impact of climate change on coastal communities’ livelihoods in the Asia-pacific region.
