Organizing Decentralized Resilience in Critical Interdependent-infrastructure Systems and Processes

Sponsor

National Science Foundation

The goal of the ORDER-CRISP (Organizing Decentralized Resilience in Critical Interdependent-infrastructure Systems and Processes) project is to study damage-inducing mechanisms such as wind, rain, storm surge, and flooding. We model their effects on damage to both infrastructure (e.g., transportation, communications, electric power, potable water) and human (social/societal) networks. In particular, our focus is on understanding these interacting utility infrastructures and devising and assessing methods that make human populations more resilient before, during, and after natural disasters. Topics being studied include social isolation, social support structures, social vulnerability indices, and various well-being indices.
