I am an integrative geographer with deep interest in investigating the spatial aspects of the interactions within and between socio-ecological systems. My research interest is on a range of issues around climate change adaptation, water resource management and land use/cover dynamics. I am currently a PhD researcher at the University of Adelaide, South Australia. I have extensive research skills and experience through my professional training as a Principal Research Assistant and a Lecturer at the Department of Geography and Regional Planning. My current research work is on Climate Variability and Socio-Ecological Systems (SESs): interrogating vulnerabilities and resilience for sustained Adaptation.
