PhD project title: Quantifying community resilience to natural hazards in Norway
Project aim: To explore the resilience of Norwegian communities to natural hazards and the perception thereof using different quantitative methods
Brief outline: As part of the research group “Climate change and natural hazards: the geography of community resilience in Norway (ClimRes.no)”, the PhD project seeks (1) to identify measurable resilience indicators that can be used to develop a community disaster resilience index for Norway; (2) to understand the perception of community resilience through the quantitative analysis of a national representative survey; and (3) to highlight potential differences between population groups and regions through the implementation and analysis of local surveys.
Keywords: community resilience, natural hazards, disaster management, resilience index
Supervisors: Päivi Lujala and Gunhild Setten
Time period: Feb 2015 – June 2019
Background: Before joining NTNU, I completed a research master’s (MRes) in International Development at the University of Bath and an MSc in Development Finance at the University of Reading.
