Caroline is excited to join the DRC team to work on the Multistakeholder Disaster Risk Management (MDRM) computational framework for hurricane preparedness for single-family homes. The MDRM framework will serve as a policy tool to evaluate hurricane preparedness policy options and their impacts on affected stakeholders at a regional scale; including homeowners, government, and primary insurers. Caroline is working under Dr. Rachel Davidson (UD), in collaboration with Dr. Joseph Trainor (UD), Dr. Linda Nozick (Cornell University), and Dr. Jamie Kruse (East Carolina University). The MDRM project is funded by NSF.
Caroline's research interests include regional disaster risk reduction strategies, multistakeholder decision making, risk and loss modeling, and community resiliency.
