R.J. van Duijne PhD (Robbin Jan)


About Me

I am a geographer with primary research interests in urban and regional development, agrarian transformations, migration, and climatic change. I have regional expertise and fieldwork experience in South Asia, particularly India (Bihar and West Bengal). My PhD research on India’s Emergent Urban Formations was funded by an NWO Research Talent Grant, and published in a range of international journals such as the Annals of the American Association of Geographers, World Development, and the Economic and Political Weekly. For my postdoc research at the PGM department of the ITC Faculty Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (University of Twente) I will be investigating how former agrarian villages along the Indo-Gangetic Plain respond and adapt to systemic environmental change. Increasingly erratic weather patterns push hundreds of millions of people out of their agrarian livelihoods which sets them adrift in search for alternative ways to forge a living.
