Research & Distribution 


My research portfolio speaks to the following three major pillars, (1) social justice in emergency management, (2) assessing the extent hazards widen inequalities, and (3) disaster recovery for schooling communities. It is through my scholarship and teaching, where I can address these categories.

The following image represents my active and most significant research projects:
