As a Higher Degree by Research student, you can choose from a wide range of topics to research, including climate change, environmental migration and human trafficking; disaster policy making and reform in developing countries; politics of crisis and disaster communication; cultural institutionalism and disasters, and more.

I can't find a supervisor who matches my research interest. What can I do?

If you've been unable to find a supervisor from the list above, you can use the researchers portal to find researchers from related fields.

  • Use one or two keywords to narrow down the list of researchers.
  • Each research profile will indicate if the researcher has the capacity to supervise.

Once you've found a suitable supervisor, you can contact them using the CDU directory.
