    Personal profile


    I am a lecturer in Disaster and Emergency Management, specialising in disaster risk perception and preparedness. I have worked predominantly with children and young people. My approach applied a mixed methodology, including the technique of Pictorial Representation of Self Measure (PRISM). I have experience in developing research methodologies, conducting quantitative research, including applying advanced statistical methods to analyse broad datasets using the SPSS; and qualitative research, promoting different ways to acquire and interpret the information collected. I experienced working with diverse government agencies, local teams, schools and students from different cultures and religions, which helped me better understand national and disciplinary boundaries, child rights, ethics, gender equality, and development issues.

    Research Interests

    I have a keen interest in working with children and young people in disaster risk reduction and understanding the factors shaping their risk perception and preparedness level. I am also interested in disaster education, community-based disaster resilience, and risk communication.
