The Research Clusters at the University of North Texas bring together faculty from a wide range of disciplines to address complex issues through interdisciplinary collaborations and innovation.
The Hazards and Disaster Research to Respond to Global Crises research cluster investigates on-the-ground planning and response in four broad areas: evacuation planning, risk modeling and service delivery, humanitarian logistics, and tourism and disaster. By evaluating evacuation costs, planning tools, demographic models, aid distribution logistics, and post-impact effects on humans, their industries and the economy, this research cluster builds leadership and expertise in risk analysis, economics and hazards geography.
