About
Dr Tetsuya Okada

Dr Tetsuya Okada’s PhD research, completed in 2017, examined the human and societal factors that influence a developed society’s ability to recover from extreme events and to reduce impacts from future events and the efforts put in place to improve the long term safety of people and infrastructure. Tetsuya explored socio-cultural differences during his thesis, such as individual behaviour, collective ideologies, social structures and policy, in four case study areas that are currently in post-event recovery phases but with different situations and cultural identities: the flood-impacted Lockyer Valley and St George regions in Queensland, and tsunami-impacted Tohoku and Fukushima regions, outside and inside the extreme caution zone against radiation, in Japan. Tetsuya is now a teaching assistant at the University of Technology Sydney.
