About
Miles Crawford

Miles' project is investigating the interface between risk and emergency management to understand how risk informs emergency management policies and procedures. It will use tsunami risk scenarios originating from an earthquake along the length of the Hikurangi Subduction Margin (New Zealand’s east coast), to study the way risk is understood, communicated, believed, and used, as well as what existing factors limit tsunami risk awareness and understanding (e.g. education, beliefs, warning measures, level of embedment). Understanding how risk interfaces with emergency management is significant because it better equips decision-makers to develop more resilient policies and procedures.

Student project

This project is researching the interface between risk and emergency management to understand how risk informs government, emergency management, policies and procedures. It is using tsunami risk scenarios originating from an earthquake along the length of the Hikurangi Subduction (off New Zealand’s North Island) to research the way risk is understood, communicated, believed, and used, as well as what existing factors limit tsunami risk awareness and understanding.
