    Biography

    Oronde Drakes is a doctoral student in the Department of Geographical and Sustainability Science at The University of Iowa, studying Geography. He is a Geoinformatics for Environmental and Energy Modeling and Prediction (GEEMaP) trainee funded by the National Science Foundation’s Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT). Drakes holds a Masters of Environmental Hazards and Geographic Information Systems from the Coventry University and a Bachelor of Arts in Geography from the University of Guyana. His previous work focused on flood vulnerability mapping and the impact of sea level rise on the coastal defences of the Demerara Mahaica region of Guyana. Upon completing his M.Sc., Drakes worked as a GIS and Hazard Specialist Consultant for International Development Agencies and NGOs (eg. UNDP; WWF) and Guyana’s national hazard management agency, contributing to management plans for pristine national parks, wetlands studies, and hazard vulnerability profiles. He simultaneously functioned as a part time lecturer at the University of Guyana, School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and the School of Education and Humanities. 

    Drakes’ current research examines the local processes that produce social vulnerability in multi-hazard settings. His work investigates human–environment interactions that create social vulnerability at local scales, the relationship between multi-hazard exposure and susceptibility and the integration of qualitative data and methods into social vulnerability index construction.
