We may never know exactly when or where an earthquake will happen, but Navakanesh Batmanathan is working to help educate people and better prepare them, should it happen. A National Geographic Young Explorer in 2017, he has worked to map faults, and the areas around faults, to gain a clearer picture of potential earthquake hazards. Currently a research assistant with the Southeast Asia Disaster Prevention Research Initiative (SEADPRI-UKM), he joins us to share more about his work as an earthquake geologist, and also to discuss the Geological Disasters Knowledge and Awareness Training of Trainers (TOT) program, to educate and encourage Malaysian Youth and Young Professionals (YYPs) to understand risks of geological disasters in Malaysia and its surrounding regions.
