About Khishigbayar Jamiyansharav
Khishig is a Postdoctoral Associate with the Department of Forest and Rangeland Stewardship, CSU. Her project is part of The Mongolian Rangelands and Resilience Project (MOR2), a collaborative research partnership involving a diverse group of interdisciplinary researchers, practitioners, herders, and policymakers. MOR2’s main goal is to investigate the resilience of rangelands and herders to climate change across Mongolia. Khishig’s project aims to co-create knowledge with policy officials, local teachers and herders concerning local rangeland conditions, and address interdisciplinary data sharing needs with Mongolian partners. Khishig’s fellowship team will partner with local teachers and soum (village) officials in writing and archiving their own stories and local knowledge about their rangeland conditions and local adaptive strategies that both local government and herders employ in the face of social-ecological changes. In addition, she intends to meet the project team needs for interdisciplinary data sharing and collaboration by designing and implementing training workshops for proposal writing, research design, and data analysis for Mongolian researchers.
