My research involves natural hazard risk assessment, numerical simulation of natural hazard processes and understanding the physical, economic and health impacts of complex natural hazard events. These themes have underpinned the development of three natural hazard loss models. These models have provided hazard and loss estimates for numerous consulting projects, informing insurance, government and emergency management organisations.
I value strong research collaborations with colleagues from a number of international institutions, and have worked on volcanic hazard and risk assessment projects in Japan, New Zealand, Peru and the Philippines. I enjoy working with graduate students and am currently supervising or co-supervising five PhD projects. I am particularly interested in the health aspects of disasters and have begun a Master of Public Health with the aim to better understand and reduce the impacts associated with food system disruptions and the spread of disease following natural disasters.
