Research Interests

Riam is a post-doctoral researcher on the project Himalayan Connections: Melting glaciers, sacred landscapes and mobile technologies in a changing climate, a collaborative project with the University of Oslo funded by the Norwegian Research Council under its NORGLOBAL programme. The project explores complexities of environmental perception and decision-making at a pivotal moment of change in high-altitude communities in the Himalaya. Through long-term fieldwork the project will document community historical mechanisms for environmental management and examine them in light of the arrival of new communication technologies and new knowledges and framing discourses around climate change and sustainable development.
