Dr Emilie Cremin
- Post-Doctoral Research Associate (School of Interdisciplinary Studies)
I joined the University of Glasgow’s School of Interdisciplinary Studies as Research Associate in February 2020. Currently, I have joined the Living Delta Research Hub. The hub aims to safeguard delta futures through more resilient communities and sustainable development. My role is to characterize coastal social-ecological tipping points especially in Mangroves social-ecologial systems and to develop a risk assessment and the Global Delta Risk Index.
I have completed a PhD in Geography on the socio-ecological systems in the Brhamaputra floodplain (Assam, North-east India) from Paris 8 university, in France 2014. Also, I hold a MSc in Environmental Science (specialization: environmental planning and management) (2007) degree from MNHN-Paris, a MSc in Local Development (2006) degree from Institute for Social and Economical Development - IEDES- Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne, and a Ba in geography (2003) degree from Sorbonne, Paris, France.
Before joining the University of Glasgow, I was engaged as a PDRA at the University of Limoges to work on River Governance – citizen participation to river management in the Dordogneriver basin, France - 2016.
I was also engaged as a Post-doc on Public Participation in Water resources management in the Dong Nai- Saigon river basin, Vietnam - 2017.
Apart from research experience, I worked as a teaching assistant at the University of Paris 8 (2008-2011 and 2016-2017) Saint-Denis and at University of Strasbourg (2013-2014) where I taught Geography.
