We are using integrative data science to mitigate natural disasters and climate change through risk, resilience and expenditure profiling. In collaboration with federal agencies, we are developing an online toolset that enables a data-driven approach to pre- and post-disaster planning, in order to improve decision making in allocation of resources, based on evaluation of data related to risk, resiliency and expenditure. We are extending this work to help build the Hoosier Resilience Index that will help Indiana residents adapt to climate change. We are thankful to the Economic Development Agency for funding for this work.
