Initially trained as an anthropologist and then as a human geographer, Sebastien Nobert (PhD University of Edinburgh) is a social scientist looking at the social, cultural and political dimensions of environmental hazards and risk through several projects both in Europe and in the global South. His most recent work engages with the broad environmental humanities and disasters studies by looking at the relationships between governance, temporalities and disasters.
