On-going Research

The HATS network of faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students are currently engaged in primary research topics:

The Anatomy of Recovery – This comparative study of disasters seeks to understand the mechanisms behind disaster recovery.

Vulnerable Groups and Disaster Risk Reduction – A comprehensive literature review to assess how women, people with disabilities, and LQBTQIA+ communities experience disasters and their access to essential resources.

Climate Change Migration: In its nascent stages, this research aims to answer critical gaps in our understanding of how the climate crisis affects the displacement of populations worldwide.

Interested in these topics or topics related to a disaster, disaster relief, disaster risk reduction, disaster recovery, gender research, or climate migration research? We would love to hear from you! Please email us at corrieh@arizona.edu.
