Please join the Payne Institute for Public Policy and Humanitarian Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Dr. Brian McAdoo, Associate Professor of Earth and Climate Science at Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment, and Dr. Eliza Hotchkiss, Senior Resilience Analyst and Group Manager at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, presenting a virtual seminar titled Energy System Resistance to Natural Hazards on Thursday, April 7, 2022 from 5:30pm – 7:30pm (MT).

This will be the second event of three in the 2022 Humanitarian Engineering Symposium series, hosted by the Socially Responsible Scientists and Engineers, Mines Humanitarian Engineering Program and The Resilience Youth Network.

We are pleased to welcome Brian McAdoo, Associate Professor of Earth and Climate Science at Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment, and Eliza Hotchkiss, Senior Resilience Analyst and Group Manager at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, to deliver engaging talks on disaster resilience and energy systems.

Brian G. McAdoo currently studies the effects of disasters triggered by natural hazards. How are humans impacting the physical systems that keep us alive, and how are marginalized populations specifically affected? Current research projects in Nepal (earthquakes, landslides and road development) as well as Borneo and Brazil (deforestation, ecosystem services and community health) seek to apply a Planetary Health framework to understand how coupled human-environment systems and geohazards interact with the ultimate goal of informing community resilience and reducing environmental suffering.

Eliza Hotchkiss is a senior resilience analyst and technical group manager leading the Resilient Systems Design and Engineering Group within NREL’s Energy Security and Resilience Center. Her areas of expertise include disaster recovery leadership and technical assistance, resilience, and international sustainable development. Her focus is on analysis and outreach to increase deployment of resilient technologies and best practices within infrastructure systems and operations. As co-principal investigator on a Laboratory Directed Research and Development project related to the value of resilience, she has led and published research on metrics for resilience, valuation, and monetization of resilience solutions. She leads resilience assessments for federal, state, local, and tribal governments and provides technical assistance for international resilience and sustainable development.
