Dale Dominey-Howes

Honorary Professor of Hazards and Disaster Risk Sciences, University of Sydney

I’m a global leader in natural hazards and disaster risk reduction

My work spans the interface between the human and earth environments/sciences - exploring the characteristics of natural hazards (distributions, frequencies & magnitudes) and their impacts on people, communities and human systems.My socially oriented work examines human hazard knowledge and perception, action and inaction.

The goals of my work are to:

enhance community resilience;
reduce losses from natural disasters; and
develop appropriate disaster risk reduction strategies.
