Project Description

Dr. Hendricks is an assistant professor in the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation and a Faculty Research Affiliate with the Clark School of Engineering’s Center for Disaster Resilience at the University of Maryland. He holds a Ph.D. in urban and regional science and a Master of Public Health, both from Texas A&M University. Dr. Hendricks‘ primary research interests include stormwater infrastructure resilience, social vulnerability to disaster, environmental justice, sustainable development, and participatory action. He utilizes a combined Social Vulnerability to Disaster and Environmental Justice framework to explore the provision of green space, adequate sewer, community facilities, public works, and stormwater services by municipalities to marginalized neighborhoods, which can modify environmental outcomes and experiences related to infrastructure. Dr. Hendricks is a Founding Fellow of the William Averette Anderson Fund, the first national interdisciplinary organization working to increase the number of underrepresented persons of color in the field of disaster research, practice, and pedagogy.
