(Mausumi) C Chetia


I work with families facing protracted disaster-displacement in Assam, India. My PhD research is part of the Erasmus Initiative called Vital Cities and Citizens [VCC]. Prior to my current academic research, I have engaged with the development/humanitarian aid field as a practitioner and have also been an arts-based therapy professional. This period of long-term empirical engagement with at-risk communities and observation of policy implementation at ground level, informs my current research.
