Senior Lecturer in Geography, King's College London

George Adamson is a Senior Lecturer in Geography whose research explores how institutions, communities and scientists understand and construct climate-related risks. His interdisciplinary work in this area has ranged from understanding how colonial governments understood their own position in relation to ideas of topicality, to exploring the institutional barriers to effective landslide warning in India today. As a historical climatologist by training he has also conducted scientific research to understand variability in monsoon systems, particularly in India.

George has been based at King's College London since 2013, having previously held postdoctoral positions at the University of Brighton and University of Sussex. His research is based primarily in India, as well as southern Africa, the United States and the United Kingdom.
