Coastal Resilience Lab

Who Are We?

Our group focuses on understanding how to build coastal resilience and sustainability in the face of growing coastal hazards. Our work is particularly focused on understanding when, where, and how natural and nature-based defenses can be used to improve social and ecological resilience. Our team engages with leaders in policy, finance, engineering, environment, economics, and insurance to help integrate ecosystem benefits in to climate adaptation and disaster risk reduction decisions.
