Alexa Tanner

PhD Student


I am a PhD student studying how people perceive and make decisions pertaining to natural disaster risk, supervised by Dr. Stephanie Chang.  My work addresses the social aspects of natural disasters with an emphasis on earthquakes and flooding.

As a member of MEOPAR’s Maritime Transportation Disruption project, I am studying risk perceptions of the marine transportation system at the organizational level, looking at both system resilience and vulnerabilities.
