Biography

Short Biography
I am Camellia, doctoral researcher in the discipline of Humanities & Social Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar, India. I specialize in the sub-discipline of Environmental Anthropology and my doctoral research is about examining the 'altered human-nature relationship in Indian Sundarbans under the larger discourse of climate disasters in the era of Anthropocene'. I have completed my masters from the School of human ecology, Ambedkar University Delhi. I have a certificate course in Trade-Environment-Development from the London School of Economics. I have worked as a Research Assistant at Ambedkar University in a Remote- sensing-based study of the built-up area dynamics as a measure of urban expansion, in Delhi and NCR.
I work with the marginal population in India (Dalits and Tribal population) to understand their everyday climate change struggle, marginalised identity and resilience stories of climate disaster, ensuing their traditional knowledge of coping strategies of the past in present. Furthermore, how these coping strategies are politicised/neglected under different climate change policies across natural-anthropogenic disasters. I have more than 4 years of experiences in conducting fieldwork and have been trained in using GIS and remote sensing.
