My work evolves around understanding how people share uncertain information and use it to make decisions during disasters. I am particularly interested in the long-term consequences of the rapid decisions that are now being made, and the implications for longer-term resilience and sustainability. In the H2020 project HERoS that is dedicated to Covid-2019, I lead the work on understanding the behavioural implications of the outbreak using ABM, including the implications of different policies and information. In addition, I am working on a project to improve the situation in refugee camps.
