Miles has always be interested in how people cope after a disaster and has gone back to university to complete his PHD. He is wanting to learn how Local Government deal and manage tsunami risk and how they communicate this risk to us. Many communities along the East Coast are at risk from tsunami, yet many people don’t know how they should respond.
Miles really enjoys doing research as it lets him meet lots of different, interesting people and learn about how they think and feel about natural hazard management.
Miles recently completed some of his research reviewing literature on tsunamis, risk and natural hazard management, after holding focus group sessions with Local Government to gather data. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2212420918300529
