His background includes research into the field of environmental (non-)migration, refugee and rehabilitation, disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate culture, vulnerability and resilience, good governance, COVID and Public health planning, and social science research methodology.
His current research focuses on the historical grounding of non-migration: why people voluntarily remain in place; how the social, environmental and political regime contributes to staying put; why and when do people perceive (non-)migration as an individual or family strategy to better their livelihoods?
