Milan Shrestha

Milan Shrestha is currently Senior Lecturer and Senior Sustainability Scientist at Arizona State University (ASU). The majority of his research focuses on the socio-cultural dimensions of disaster risks, agriculture-food systems, common pool resources and other sustainability challenges. He also specializes in an interdisciplinary approach that combines socio-cultural data with geospatial analysis and visualization techniques to reveal complex patterns of environmental change such as, land cover change, landscape fragmentation, deforestation, and urban growth. His current research has been on the climate-water-agriculture nexus, particularly how people respond to climate change, glacial flood hazards and disaster risks, and how their socio-cultural, economic and institutional factors influence their social adaptation strategies.
