Shilpi Kundu has been serving as an Assistant Professor (currently on study leave) in the department of Agricultural Extension and Information System since 2013 at Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Before that, she was serving as a lecturer for 2 years at the same institution. At present, she is a Ph.D. candidate at Griffith University’s School of Environment and Science based on Nathan, Australia with the thesis entitled Institutional Effectiveness in Climate Resilient Agricultural Policy for Food Security in Coastal Bangladesh. Her research is focusing on understanding political and institutional arrangements that contribute efficiently to address the climate change-related risks and to enhance resilience in the agricultural system which includes issues such as current policy and its implementation, limits to adaptation, and the gaps that we often see between academic theory and real-world practical actions. Educational background includes a Master’s degree in Agricultural Extension from Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University and another double Master's degree in Sustainable Forest and Nature Management Studies under the European Commission’s Erasmus Mundus program with a focus on landscape ecology from Gottingen University, Germany and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Sweden. As an early career researcher, she is actively interested in applying social research methods in promoting cooperation between innovation development and adoption inclusively sustainable development goals for the practical advancement of global success.
