July 2018A paper titled "Hard-adaptive measures can increase vulnerability to storm surge and tsunami hazards over time" co-authored by Tom Logan, Jeremy Bricker (TU Delft), and Seth Guikema was provisionally accepted for publication (pending minor revisions) in Nature Sustainability. This paper develops a new understanding of the influence of repeated tsunamis on the evolution of community vulnerability over time and the role that seawalls play in potentially increasing vulnerability to Black Swan events.
June 2018A paper titled "Agent-Based Models as an Integrating Boundary Object for Interdisciplinary Research" co-authored by Allison Reilly, Robin Dillon-Merrill, and Seth Guikema was accepted for publication in Risk Analysis. This paper discusses the need for boundary objects for interdisciplinary research teams and suggests that agent based models are a strong candidate as a boundary object for many settings.
April 2018A paper titled "Statistical Modeling of Tree Failures During Storms" co-authored by Elnaz Kabir, Brian Kane, and Seth Guikema was accepted for publication in Reliability Engineering and System Safety. This paper develops statistical models for tree failures during storms.
