Managing political-economy of vulnerability in cities

A transition of the physical infrastructure to reduce vulnerability to extreme events will require changes in behavior, norms and regulations, but the dynamics of the physical infrastructure and human behavior are not synced. In collaboration with Hallie Eakin (ASU) and Luis Bojorquez (UNAM) we are developing models combining insights from the social science and engineering to explore transition pathways that are socially just and enable robustness of water delivery and flood protection in the long term.
