Seismic hazard in tomorrows cities
This work is being undertaken as part of a major GCRF Hub. It is not possible to list all the stakeholders and researchers involved, so I have limited the list below to key players I have been interacting with in the seismic hazard work.
Dr Karim Tarbali (UCL/Edinburgh): Physics based simulation PDRA
Himanshu Agrawal (PhD Edinburgh/UCL):
Farnaz Kamranzad (PhD Edinburgh):
Dr Deepak Chamlagain (Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu): Seismic hazard in Kathmandu WP lead
Dr Ramesh Guragain (NSET, Kathmandu):
Prof Hugh Sinclair: Kathmandu City Lead
Prof John McCloskey: Tomorrow’s City’s Hub Lead
Prof Carmine Glasso (UCL): Wave simulation and Risk Lead
Dr Mark Naylor
CoI 2019-24 (£20M) GCRF Multi-hazard Urban Disaster Risk Transitions Hub. This interdisciplinary flagship project led by McCloskey is an opportunity for GeoSciences to contribute to reduction of risk in Istanbul, Quito, Kathmandu and Nairobi.
PI 2016-17 £104k (160k) NERC-ESRC-AHRC Building Resilience to Natural Hazards: Research for Emergency Aftershock Response, REAR: Interdisciplinary exploration of the factors that would lead to an effective response during an evolving aftershock sequence in an ODA context. Integrates contributions from digital education, history, data science, internet of things, cultural geography, conflict studies, earthquake science, statistics and end-user groups.
