Six IRDR members recently visited the areas affected by the tsunami and the Fukushima-Daichi nuclear power plant accident in March 2011. The group consisted of four PhD students – Omar Velazquez, Nurmala Nurdin, Serena Tagliacozzo and Zoe Mildon, one Master’s student – Sandra Camacho Otero - and David Alexander, Professor of Disaster Risk Reduction at UCL IRDR.  Their experience has been covered in a recent blog post and in international newspapers (see here and here). Zoe Mildon, third year PhD student at UCL IRDR, is currently spending 4 months at Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan - which is in the region affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster - after winning the prestigious JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) grant (read more).
