MGI's Dr. Ava Maxam Joins Global Team of Experts in Mapping Hurricane Recoveries in a Warming World

 A new Goldsmiths, University of London project will map hurricane adaptations, survivals and recoveries in the Caribbean, creating a resource to help mitigate future disasters. Led by Dr Adom Philogene Heron (Department of Anthropology), Caribbean Cyclone Cartography (CCC) researchers will collaborate with communities based in Dominica (Eastern Caribbean) to collect oral histories of hurricane recoveries, which could help influence future disaster response efforts......

The all-Caribbean investigative team is made up sociologist Dr Cecilia Green (Syracuse University), literary scholar Dr Schuyler Esprit (UWI & Create Caribbean), oceanographer Dr Ava Maxam (MGI, UWI) and disaster science and management PhD candidate Farah Nibbs (Delaware University).
