Sally Priest appointed Head of Centre at Middlesex University - Flood Hazard Research Centre.

RISC-KIT partner takes the helm at MU-FHRC, UK.
        

 

RISC-KIT's Sally Priest was recently appointed as the new Head of Centre at Middlesex University's Flood Hazard Research Centre (FHRC), UK. The FHRC is an interdisciplinary research centre, based in the School of Science and Technology at Middlesex University. Their experienced academics and skilled research students specialise in the interaction between people and the environment, as well as the analysis and appraisal of environmental policies. 

 

The main tasks of MU-FHRC within RISC-KIT are (i) WP2 leader and steering committee member; (ii) development of the coastal risk assessment framework tool including indicators (Tasks 2.2 and 2.3); (iii) contribution to WP4 Tasks 4.1  4.2 and 4.3 with respect to the multi-criteria analysis and the development of the web-based management guide; (iv) support in the use of the CRAF in WP5 and participation to the UK case study; (v) dissemination activities (Tasks 6.1 and 6.3).

 

Sally joined the centre in 2007 as a Senior Research Fellow. Her research interests focus on the application of social science across a range of areas in flood risk management. She is also interested in different aspects of social responses to, and the understanding of, risk and is keen to investigate cultural influences on flood perception. She is also interested in the effectiveness of public information in raising awareness about flooding and the influence that it has on attitudes and behaviour.

 

The RISC-KIT Consortium wishes Sally every success in her new role and looks forward to all the great things to come!
