Colleagues from the Centre are collaborating in an exciting new cross-disciplinary research project led by the School of Geosciences at Edinburgh, which will be researching new ways to respond to earthquake and aftershock in crisis regions.

In partnership with Concern Worldwide, the University of Ulster, University of Plymouth, Leeds Beckett University and the British Geological Survey, we will be looking at how we might design educational interventions to help people make decisions before, during and after earthquake.

The various strands of the project make it uniquely rich in terms of cross-disciplinarity, including colleagues from Geosciences, Informatics, History, Education, Human Geography and High Performance Computing.

We are delighted that Dr Michael Gallagher will be joining the team in Education as Research Associate on this project.
