DRC is thrilled to announce that Shangjia Dong will be joining us in fall, 2020 as part of UD's disaster science cluster initiative. Shangjia is currently a postdoctoral research associate at Urban Resilience, Networks, and Informatics Lab in Zachry Department of Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University. He received his Ph.D. in civil engineering and minor in computer sciences from Oregon State University. Shangjia's interdisciplinary research on disaster science and urban resilience uses a network paradigm that bridges the boundaries between network science, civil engineering, and social sciences. His work seeks to enable risk and resilience assessments of infrastructure systems as well as risk-informed decision-making for climate change adaptation, critical infrastructure protection, disaster preparedness and response, equitable resilience planning and management. He joins our new disaster science cluster faculty in anthropology, sociology, and public policy/geography who started at UD in fall, 2019. Welcome, Shangjia!
