Our diverse team of researchers and partners are working collaboratively to deepen our knowledge of natural hazards and create new tools to build our resilience.
We bring together physical science, mātauranga Māori, social science, and engineering research to develop policies and tools that reduce the social and economic impacts of future natural hazard events.
