Laura Siebeneck
 
My research interests intersect the areas of hazards, emergency management, and GIS.  My research goals aim to advance knowledge and theory pertaining to emergency management strategies and household behavior during the evacuation and return-entry processes during disaster events. Specifically, my research focuses on geographic and temporal dimensions of risk perception, risk communication, and household decision-making during disasters.
