Resilience to Natural Hazards

Around the world, critical infrastructure is subjected to extreme natural hazards every day. Natural hazards, such as earthquakes, landslides, floods, hurricanes and tsunamis cause damage to critical infrastructure. The damage to critical infrastructure from such events results in loss of life and social/economic costs resulting from the recovery process. The team of researchers in CCIR aim to understand and quantify the risk from the natural hazards and subsequently improve the resilience of critical infrastructure to natural hazards through the multi-disciplinary research we undertake. The staff involved in Resilience to Natural Hazards are:
