My primary research concerns social factors in fire evacuation. Currently, I am pursuing questions relating to COVID-19 and wildfire evacuation, but I’ve done more extensive work on building fire evacuation and computer models thereof.

I’ve given a number of presentations related to agent-based modeling incorporating group loyalty in evacuation from fire, including PyGotham 2018 and SfAA 2019, which are linked in the menu. I also presented a poster at the 2019 Natural Hazards Workshop as well as presenting at the subsequent Researchers Meeting. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

The poster:

Hazards 2019 poster

The text from the poster is also available in plaintext. My thesis has more details on methodology and implications.

Some of the presentations I’ve given have been recorded:
