CUAHSI is partnering with the Department of Homeland Security Flood Apex Program to support a post-doctoral student to advance flood science. The post-doc supports the CUAHSI Summer Institute and DHS Flood Apex activities and conducts research that advances the goals of the Flood Apex Program. Katherine Schlef, the first CUAHSI post-doc successfully completed her activities in 2019, working with advisors from Columbia University and the University of Alabama. Our new post-doc, Kristin Raub, will begin in late 2020 following completion of her Ph.D. at the University of Vermont. She will be working with Dr. Jennie Stephens at Northeastern University to better understand and document options for community flood resilience.
