Universitair hoofddocent
International Development Studies

Dr. Mallick’s research focuses on “people and place”, in particular, his background includes research into the field of - 

intergenerational environmental (non-)migration
refugee and host-communities' interactions
disaster risk reduction (DRR)
climate culture, resilience, and adaptation. 
He has been awarded more than €2 million in competitive research funding, including Marie Sklodowska-Curie Global Fellowship under EU Horizon 2020 programme.

His current research focuses on the historical grounding of non-migration (i.e., why people voluntarily remain in place through generations; how the social, environmental and political regimes contribute to staying put). He employs both socio-spatial approaches and mixed methods in his research.

Dr. Mallick has been significantly contributing to the field of environmental non-migration and believes in South-North-South collaboration as the key pathway to sustainable development. 

He has published over 30 peer-reviewed manuscripts and book chapters. His recent research has appeared in Environment Research Letters, Ambio, Applied Geography; Environment, Development and Sustainability; Ecological Economics; Sustainability; and the Journal of Computational Social Science.
