Description of Research Activities: Co-Investigator in project titled, Coastal Cities at Risk, a transdisciplinary project partnering with Bangkok, Manila and Lagos and, in Canada, with a Vancouver team.  My main focus is to determine human health impacts related to flooding events and sea level rise, developing a "composite health index" that can be used as an input for a computer modeling exercise to assess the resilience of the city, as well as to develop mapping techniques that may help policy makers identify areas of the city where adaptive measures could be put in place to increase city resilience to these events.
