18 Sep 2017

We are pleased to announce that Asst Professor David Lallemant  has been awarded the NRF Fellowship.

David Lallemant’s research focuses on understanding and quantifying the evolution of extreme risk in today’s growing cities. He uses hazard modeling, engineering analysis, predictive modeling and spatial statistics for application in large-scale natural disaster risk analysis. The transdisciplinary and policy-oriented nature of his work has led him to build collaborations with the World Bank, Google, the Red Cross, the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery, the Natural Capitals Project and others.
