Using Twitter to study people's crisis responses

Often in the case of a disaster, there are too few resources available to the community. A new algorithm analyzes individuals' tweets to better understand how they respond to crises, offering a new way to inform decisions on disaster management.

Nateghi, Johnson present at SRA

Two IE professors and several grad students presented research at the 2018 Society for Risk Analysis (SRA) Annual Meeting. Studies presented at this meeting utilize risk assessment and risk mitigation practices to prepare for future severe weather events because past practices are no longer adequate.
No upcoming events.

Welcome to the Laboratory for Advancing Sustainable Critical Infrastructure (LASCI)!

Sustainable & Resilient Urban Systems

Critical infrastructure systems underlie the economic prosperity of every society. These systems include energy, water, transportation, healthcare, information and communications technology, security, and financial services. Ensuring resiliency of these highly complex, interactive and interdependent systems is of utmost importance, due to the essential services that they provide.

Dr. Nateghi’s research is highly interdisciplinary and involves leveraging advanced analytical tools (e.g., statistical learning theory, simulation, optimization, risk and decision analysis) to address the sustainability and resiliency challenges of our aging infrastructure. Her past work has focused on modeling the impacts of extreme events and climate change on our energy infrastructure at various spatio-temporal scales. Her on-going research involves assessing the economic and environmental implications of the emerging changes in climate, technology, population growth and accelerated urbanization on patterns of demand for critical services such as water and energy.
