About the Project
Critical infrastructure systems such as power, water, sewer, transportation and ICT are the backbone of economies and societies. They are extremely vulnerable to multiple natural hazard events, and due to their highly interdependent features can often lead to cascading failures and significantly impacting households and businesses alike worldwide . For instance, 6 of the 10 most populous cities are at risk from floods, storm surges and tsunamis. Therefore, effective assessment of infrastructure resilience under current and future climates is vital so that cities can adapt and prepare in advance for the worst-scenarios that could come. This PhD project will focus on developing novel approaches for infrastructure resilience assessment under multi hydrometeorological hazard events. In particular, the PhD will explore the following areas:
1) multi-hazard risk analysis from flood, storm, heatwave, extreme cold, drought, based on different climate change scenarios
3) the dynamic modelling of hazards, interdependent infrastructure and socioeconomic systems
4) infrastructure resilience quantifications
The primary essential criteria are the ability and willingness to learn new skills and techniques such as programming and numerical modelling, alongside a strong first degree in a relevant subject area (e.g. Civil Engineering, Geographical Sciences etc.).
