    Hi. I am a researcher of coastal societies, archipelagic ecologies, historic maritime networks, and am a site specific performance artist who works with water and islands on the topic of storm surge and its impact on local histories. My book Fluid New York (Duke University Press, 2013) addressed issues around Hurricane Sandy. My new book Sea Log (Routledge 2019) probes issues of ontology and the anthropocene in the Indian Ocean. I am currently writing a book on comparative archipelagoes, studying storm surge issues in the Lakshadweep Sea, the Aegean and the Jamaica bay. The recent catastrophe in Kerala has heightened the urgency and challenges of offering any kind of creative thinking that is actionable. I am coming to this meeting hoping to emerge with fresh insights on how to address the already precarious state of coastal habitation.
