John Duncan

Post Doctoral Researcher

My research interests centre around the following areas:

  • Assessing the impact of climatic extremes and variability on agriculture, especially in South Asia, 
  • Understanding the vulnerability, resilience and adaptive capacity of rural communities and agricultural practices to climatic extremes and variability,
  • Disaster risk reduction and resilience to disasters in rural communities (especially tropical cyclones),
  • The links between climate change and climate variability and food and water security.

My research methods have involved integrating remote sensing, GIS and spatial analysis of climate data with range of socio-economic data sources including household surveys, qualitative interview data, secondary data (e.g. census, agricultural statistics) and policy document analysis.
