Dr. Biswanath Dash

M. Phil (2000-2002) and PhD (2002-2012), from Centre for Studies in Science Policy (CSSP), School of Social Science, JNU, New Delhi.

The M. Phil dissertation examined reasons for large death toll during 1999 Odisha Super Cyclone. My PhD work examined 'Meteorology' as a 'Complex Science' and explored its uptake by the general Public during tropical cyclones. Overall it situates 'public evacuation' within a 'science-society' engagement framework, highlighting inherent limitation of the underlying science' to explain  people's action or a lack of it. The broad research trajectory that I follow, seeks to bring together theoretical frameworks from ‘Science and Technology Studies’ with ‘Disaster Studies’.
