Co-PI Matthew leads the team and examines root causes of unconventional security challenges (e.g. climate change and natural disasters) to develop solutions that empower and protect communities most vulnerable to the processes of global change. For the FloodRISE project, co-PI Matthew will focus on communicating flood modeling to stakeholders based on theories of science communication and social psychology. Co-PIs Feldman, Basolo, Houston, and Balsdon will develop the baseline studies on policy, risk perception, and economic evaluation.
