Academic career  

I am an urban planner with focus on urban resilience. I am interested in operationalizing the multifaceted concept of urban and community resilience as well as understanding factors that contribute to resilience and needed interventions to build and sustain it. I am also working on Inclusive Resilience as an integrated paradigm for cities facing ongoing or emerging stresses.

Research topics  

Operationalizing community resilience, Conceptualizing Inclusive Resilience
