Dimuthu has a background in marine biology and protected area management and has worked with the IUCN and other ENGOs in several coastal development projects in Sri Lanka. Her PhD seeks to understand the ‘Role of Place’ in shaping climate adaptation. Utilizing various qualitative and quantitative methods, this research will map community place attachments in the East Coast of Tasmania against predicted marine and coastal climate vulnerabilities of the region. This research aims to understand the way in which place attachment has impacted climate adaptation in the region and how place attachment can be integrated into decision-making and climate change policy adaptation.
