Flooding in Iowa City, Iowa during the June 2013 flood event.

Research Background

My research area includes temporal topics in GIScience and how they can be applied to natural hazards. Event modeling approaches capture the geographic dynamics that occur for a given domain. During natural hazard events, for example, modeling these occurrences as events represents the movement and change within the hazard area. Hazard events (e.g., flooded roadway, bridge failure) are the happenings that decision-makers respond to during a disaster and from these events arise response actions. Simulating geographic hazard events provide a holistic view of the disaster and provide better information for spatiotemporal decision making.
