    Biography

    Christin Salley is a doctoral student in the Civil Engineering program at Johns Hopkins University from Flossmoor, Illinois. She was a Spring 2019 graduate from the University of Maryland, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Fire Protection Engineering. Her undergraduate degree in Fire Protection Engineering has taught her the importance of protecting people, property, and the environment. This sparked an interest in translating the knowledge she learned from fire disasters, to all natural disasters. Her undergraduate major provided her with a unique perspective on structural analysis that is not thought of often, but is essential to successful construction and safety in terms of evacuation and resilience. These systems and practices are not only useful for fires, as they can be implemented after any type of disaster.

    In graduate school, she desires to conduct research in risk, reliability, and resilience for the protection and recovery of the built environment and social systems within communities after a natural disaster. Specifically, she would like to research community resilience and human behavior before, during, and after these events. She hopes to implement proper training programs, community-based disaster plans, and procedures that help mitigate losses to society due to catastrophic events. Her long term career goals are to go into academic and administrative roles at the collegiate level, along with becoming a licensed engineer. She wants to train, mentor, and teach the next generation, while conducting research that benefits communities worldwide.
