Andrea Déri
PhD Candidate, Department of Geography, Environment and Development Studies (GEDS), Birkbeck, University of London

Andrea Déri’ s research explores the role of local (traditional, indigenous) knowledge in adaptation and resilience to climate change, with a focus on vulnerable low-lying small island communities.  She is particularly interested in how academic and non-academic experts can conduct long-term collaborative research, co-produce knowledge and contribute to the understanding of transformative social-ecological changes.  Driven by her trans-disciplinary research motivation and inter-disciplinary background that draws on ecology, anthropology and development studies, she has managed a wide range of research and international development projects with several years of experience in India, Indonesia and Japan.
