I am a second year PhD student in the Department of Earth, Marine and Environmental Sciences (EMES) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My dissertation research is focused on understanding how natural and anthropogenic processes alter coastal flood hazards and societal risk on annual to decadal time scales. My experience is in using hydrodynamic models to map pluvial, fluvial, and coastal flood hazards, especially in urban areas, to support planning decisions. The 4TU Resilience Fellowship is supporting my collaboration with Prof. dr. Tatiana Filatova to investigate the impacts of household adaptations and community-scale mitigation projects on flood hazard and risk. Our research will contribute to the broader 4TU research community as it will facilitate convergence on terminology, methods, and data standards between social and physical scientists researching flood risk management and climate adaptation.
