I am a PhD student at Uni Research Climate in Bergen, Norway, which is also a part of the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Change. In my research I take an interdisciplinary approach to studying the monsoon. I have developed techniques to guide climate research design using the perceptions of the people in Bangladesh. In my poster, I present a method that we have developed to compare the peoples perceptions with different monsoon onset definitions. With this information, we can then better plan research so that the people can relate to it more easily thereby encouraging action.
My poster was part of the Climate Services session. Climate Services is a meeting point for natural and social scientists from many different fields. I therefore designed my poster around a simple storyboard format, which I hoped as many people as possible would be able to follow.
