Multi-hazard Analysis

The MAE Center is at the forefront of risk research, developing the most comprehensive and realistic model for risk analysis considering multiple hazards from earthquakes to hurricanes, tornado and fire, and drawing from unique expertise in multiple disciplines.

Risk analysis for natural and human-made hazards is particularly challenging due to the rare occurrence of extreme events and because of the complex process of interaction of, in particular, natural events with the natural and the built environment to produce a societal impact.

The information generated by the MAE Center allows for better informed decision- and policy-making.
