PhD candidate Sabrina Scherzer

Sabrina Scherzer is a PhD candidate, and works on a project which seeks
(1) to identify measurable resilience indicators that can be used to develop a disaster resilience index for Norway;
(2) to understand the perception of community resilience through the quantitative analysis of nationally representative surveys; and
(3) to highlight potential differences between population groups and regions through the implementation and analysis of local surveys.
