Our Research Themes
Our work covers the broad field of probabilistic risk analysis (a.k.a. the mathematics of disasters), disaster risk reduction, post-disaster assessment, and recovery. Spanning the entire disaster cycle, we combine methods from spatial statistics, risk analysis, statistical learning and the social sciences in order to better understand the potential impacts of natural hazards on society and develop tools to promote resilient communities.
Work with us!
The Disaster Analytics for Society Lab (DASL) is led by Dr. David Lallemant, Assistant Professor at the Asian School of the Environment and Principal Investigator at the Earth Observatory of Singapore in Nanyang Technological University (NTU). DASL works closely with communities in Asia and collaborates with researchers from around the world who share our passion for applying rigorous quantitative methods and interdisciplinary tools to reduce the risks faced by cities and communities to natural hazards.
We also take seriously the social and ecological context of our work — anthropogenic climate change and the increasing frequency of disasters that affect the most vulnerable — and strive to build a group culture that is sustainable, supportive, and aligned with our values. We are a young, dynamic research group looking to grow.
We currently have openings for post-doctoral researchers, research associates, and PhD students. Click the link below to learn more.
