My overall research interest is linking risk, resilience and global health, including the integration of climate change into disaster research and health research. I have three main areas:
Peace and conflict: How and why disaster-related interventions (disaster diplomacy, including for climate-related hazards) and health-related interventions (health diplomacy, including pandemics) do and do not influence conflict and cooperation.
Island sustainability: Creating and maintaining safer and healthier communities on islands and in isolated areas, such as border, Arctic, and mountain communities.
Risk education: Increasing the effectiveness and impact of risk education, focusing on health and disaster risks, including climate change.
Post-disaster and cure-related investigations are an essential part of this research, but I prioritise continual disaster and health risk management in order to implement solutions before it is too late.
I am developing a module for October 2014 related to risk, resilience and global health. If you have any suggestions or preferred topic focus, please let me know. Thank you!
