Krishna Shrestha

Associate Professor in Development Studies
Associate Director

Krishna K. Shrestha is a development and environmental geographer. His research program is in the interdisciplinary analysis of Social and Environmental Justice, focusing on the intersection of development and environmental planning, policy and management. Over the years, his research projects encompass four key areas: a) political ecology and international development, b) climate change adaptation and urban planning, c) food security and livelihoods, and d) disaster resilience and justice. Connecting these is an overarching analytical thread of justice as redistribution and recognition.  Krishna's work constitutes blending a) moral philosophy and theories of justice with critical development theories and political ecology. His research on these themes simultaneously engages with grand theory and real-world societal challenges. He uses grounded analysis of socio-political and ecological dynamics through a multi-scale perspective where the role of unequal power relations in constituting a politicised environment is a central theme. His research gives particular attention to the ways in which problems of justice are linked to systems of social hierarchy and political and economic control. He uses a ‘critical pragmatic’ approach to development and environmental problems in which rigorous explanation is balanced with carefully considered policy alternatives. Most of his work is interdisciplinary and empirically based which integrates social and natural science methodologies to examine the interrelationship between social and natural systems. His research, teaching and engagements are driven by the belief that science needs to be useful for society, and therefore is committed to enhancing science-policy interface.

Krishna is currently Associate Professor at the School of Social Sciences, University of New South Wales, Australia. Prior to this appointment, Krishna was Program Director at the Urban and Regional Planning and Policy at the University of Sydney. He also held various positions at the University of Queensland, Macquarie University and the Department of Forests in Nepal Government. He was a visiting scholar at the Department of Geography, Cambridge University, UK, and Visiting Senior Research Fellow at Asia Research Institute at National University of Singapore (NUS). He served as a member of the Academic Board at the University of Sydney. He is the recipient of the Endeavour Research Fellowship by the Australian Government. He has an interdisciplinary qualification, with higher degrees in Geography (PhD Sydney), Higher Education (Grad. Cert. Sydney), Environmental Policy and Management (MEEM, UTS) and Forestry (BSc TU Nepal).
