I have worked as a hazard scientist and program leader for over ten years, focussed on the delivery of Australian-Aid funded technical DRR programs in the Asia-Pacific to support the development of DRR science and data required to underpin decision making and policy development. Scientifically I have mainly focussed on tsunami hazard and impact assessment. Currently I am undertaking PhD studies in understanding the urban seismic risk that exists in Java, Indonesia.
