Angus William Naylor


I am a research student at the University of Leeds, within the Priestley International Centre for Climate. I am in the second year of a 1+3 ESRC WRDTP scholarship, which focuses on the economics of subsistence hunting and climate change adaptation in Canada's Far North. My background prior to my current studentship focused upon social vulnerability, and the role of demographic factors (e.g. age) in disaster mortality.

Research interests

My current research interests focus on climate change adaptation and vulnerability among indigenous groups of the circumpolar region. In particular, the role that climatic change and other determinants of food security may have on the microeconomics of subsistence hunting.
