Risk science | Civil systems | Urban planning | Resilience

I study the risk and resilience of urban systems. My research is focused on transforming how we design and realize our cities in the face of climate change. I use risk science, systems engineering, modeling, and statistics to adapt our cities.

My research is at the intersection of:

  • Urban and civil systems
  • Risk analysis and uncertainty
  • Resilience and adaptation to a changing climate.
