Cristina Bradatan

Cristina is a sociologist. Her research focuses on social conflicts that arise due to the effects of climate change. She specifically focuses on climate change effects, adaptation, demographic methods, and migration. She seeks to find answers to, where will people go if they are climate refugees and what rights will they receive in those countries? Scientists expect 25 million to 1 billion to be displaced by the effects of climate change. Cristina creates models on migration effects and population structure and she is using those models to create solutions.
