Project Description

Dr. Thompson is an assistant professor at Texas A&M University in the Department of Geography. Dr. Thompson received her Ph.D. in geography from the University of Idaho. She also holds an M.S. in geography from the University of Idaho and a B.S. in geography from New Mexico State University. Her research in human-environment interactions examines relationships between social systems and natural hazard impacts using a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods, including GIS, interviews, survey analysis, and spatial statistics. Specifically, she employs vulnerability and resilience assessment methodologies that empower local decision-makers to create and strategically implement resilience-enhancing mitigation and adaptation strategies. Her research also focuses on quantifying how the vulnerability and resilience of coastal communities interact with the social structuration of society, multi-scalar factors, and risk perceptions.
