Developing Innovative Strategies to
in Extreme Events
I am a postdoctoral Research Scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory unit of the Earth Institute at Columbia University. My research mainly focuses on risk assessment due to extreme events. I also work on bringing science into action through applying innovative adaptation measures to help communities be resilient in natural disasters.

Urbanization, driven by population growth and economic development, is one of the main factors that exposes more people and assets to floods. Here, I try to answer how can we anticipate urbanization in the future? How can we assess the effect of urbanization on future flood risk? How can we combine urban planning policies and socioeconomic incentives to the urbanization process to help the communities moving toward resilience?
