ISEEER is a platform for sharing information that supports hazards and disaster researchers participating in interdisciplinary teams/work. Grounded in the science of team science, it is dedicated to providing cutting-edge resources that advance interdisciplinary theory, methods, and approaches to extreme events research.
Lori Peek is the founder and principal investigator of ISEEER and director of the Natural Hazards Center and CONVERGE at the University of Colorado Boulder. If you have questions or would like to learn more about getting involved with ISEEER, you can contact her directly at Lori.Peek@colorado.edu.
Interdisciplinary Theory, Methods, and Approaches for Hazards and Disaster Research
A Special Issue of the Journal Risk Analysis
Volume 41, Number 7, July 2021 – Edited by Seth Guikema and Lori Peek.
This special issue of Risk Analysis includes an introduction and 25 original perspectives papers meant to highlight new trends and applications in the field. The papers were written following two National Science Foundation supported workshops that were organized in response to the growing interest in interdisciplinary hazards and disaster research, the increasing number of interdisciplinary funding opportunities and collaborations in the field, and the need for more rigorous guidance for interdisciplinary researchers and research teams. The special collection is organized around the cross-cutting themes of theory, methods, approaches, interdisciplinary research projects, and applications to advance interdisciplinarity in hazards and disaster research.
