Organizing Decentralized Resilience in Critical Interdependent-Infrastructure Systems and Processes (ORDER-CRISP)

177 Huntington Av, 3rd Floor

Event Website

Rising seas and extreme weather events (e.g., hurricanes, storm surges and inland flooding) threaten the status, sustainability and security of low-lying coastal communities. In the face of skyrocketing storm impacts and disruptions of life, the proposed research will develop a well-integrated scalable resilience modeling framework for mitigating vulnerabilities in interdependent infrastructure systems. By integrating risk-based analyses, agent-based simulations, and the socioeconomic impacts of inoperability, the ORDER-CRISP will build an ensemble approach in modeling interdependent-infrastructure failures. We will investigate the effects of recent hurricanes on the interdependent-infrastructures in energy, water, transportation and telecommunication, and the human-infrastructures interactions. With insights from location-specific interdependencies and interactions, we will explore the coevolving nature of vulnerability and complementary pathways of resilience at various scales.

This lecture is hosted by GRI and will be given by Dr. Pallab Mozumder, Professor of Economics, Florida International University.
