Dr. Lori Peek presenting ‘The Power of Convergence: Interdisciplinary Extreme Events Research and Reconnaissance’ 

Rethinking our approach to hurricane disaster research – Dr. Lori Peek will take the position that when research teams broaden their research framework to also center considerations of research ethics and social justice, post-disaster reconnaissance of large-scale disasters like hurricanes can be ethically informed, scientifically rigorous, and carefully coordinated. Dr. Lori Peek is the principal investigator of the NSF-funded NHERI CONVERGE initiative and the Social Science Extreme Events Research (SSEER) network, the director of the Natural Hazards Center, and professor at the University of Colorado Boulder.  You can read the full webinar’s summary and biography of Dr. Lori Peek HERE

The HERS Network, Hurricane Ecosystem Response Synthesis Research Coordination Network, is funded by NSF and dedicated to connecting natural scientists, economists, sociologists, statisticians, modelers, and resource managers to develop a global understanding for what governs ecosystems responses to tropical cyclones
