Short description of research interests (max 100 words)

My current research unites significant international education and environmental change inquiry: how disasters complicate already existing challenges on systems that frame access, equity, and power relations in education. My dissertation, Assessing and Understanding Disaster Vulnerability of School Children in Coastal Bangladesh, examines educational (dis)continuity of marginalized children living in one of the most disaster-prone areas in coastal Bangladesh. By utilizing a theoretical framework of “entangled vulnerability,” my research investigates how school children experience, make meaning of, and adapt to both abrupt disasters such as cyclones and slow onset disasters such as salinity intrusion in the changing climate in the Sundarbans.
