Project Description

Dr. Ross is an assistant professor in the Department of Marine Sciences and a faculty fellow with the Center for Texas Beaches and Shores at Texas A&M University at Galveston. She holds an M.A. in political science from Louisiana State University and a Ph.D. in political science from Texas A&M University. Dr. Ross studies the vulnerability of coastal communities to natural disasters and other hazards and how to make them more resilient. As a political scientist, she approaches these challenges from a public administration and policy perspective. She then uses this information to inform policies with the goal of enhancing community resilience. Her research examining coastal hazards has produced the book Local Disaster Resilience: Administrative and Political Perspectives. Dr. Ross was a 2014 National Science Foundation Next Generation of Hazard and Disasters Researchers Program fellow. Her work on Gulf Coast disaster resilience has also been supported by the Department of Homeland Security.
