Dr. Biswanath Dash

M. Phil (2000-2002) and PhD (2002-2012), Centre for Studies in Science Policy (CSSP), School of Social Science, JNU, New Delhi. The PhD work examined 'Meteorology' as a 'Complex Science' and explored its uptake by the general Public during tropical cyclones. It situates 'evacuation' within a 'science-society' engagement, highlighting inherent limitation of the underlying science' to explain  public action. My overall research seeks to bring together theoretical frameworks from ‘Science and Technology Studies’ with that of ‘Disaster Studies’.
