Graduate Research Assistant

This project has three parts. A research assistant will work with me to review literature on climate mobility. In particular, literature on relocation policies and on trapped and displaced populations. Starting from this review, we will develop a conjoint (survey experiment) to assess public preferences towards various aspects of climate migration and climate financing. We will aim to run this survey across countries. In parallel, the research assistant will work with me to extend ongoing qualitative work on the Gulf Coast work to identify displacement that has occurred as a result of extreme weather events in Florida and Texas and how it is exacerbating local inequities.
