Mr Asheshwor Man Shrestha

Currently, I am with the Department of Geography, Environment and Population, University of Adelaide working on my PhD on the topic of human-environment interactions and climate-resilience in the Nepali plains. I have submitted my thesis to examiners and expected to finish by mid-2017.

Apart from the research work, I also volunteer at the Adelaide City Library Innovation Lab tutoring visitors about 3D printing and scanning technologies.

My PhD research explores the complex human-environment interactions in the Nepali plains (Tarai) to draw insights into non-linear environment-livelihood relationships, particularly the increasing use of ex-situ earnings from transnational migration.

The major tasks associated my research are:

  1. Design a mixed-methods study to evaluate human-environment interactions.
  2. Conduct household surveys and interviews at two study sites in the Nepali plains.
  3. Conduct quantitative analysis of primary field survey data.
  4. Conduct quantitative analysis of of trends on climate variability and change on long-term climatic data.
  5. Assess the impacts on environmental change to local livelihood at study sites using socio-ecological resilience, and risk society framework.

My previous research work involved climate change adaptation policy and environmental design.
