    Biography

    Melissa is currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Colorado, Boulder in the Department of Sociology and a Graduate Research Assistant in the Natural Hazards Center of the Institute of Behavioral Science. She previously attended Texas A&M University, College Station, where she received her bachelor’s degree in sociology in 2016. Melissa is interested in gender dynamics within the disaster cycle; particularly in the ways women experience unique challenges during disasters and disaster recovery. Her work explores how the perceived roles of women during disasters influence their experiences and thus their recovery. Additionally, she is now exploring other areas of interest within the broader topic of gender dynamics in hazards and disaster research. She is now a fellow for the Bill Anderson Fund—which is dedicated to advancing the success of minority professionals in the hazards and disasters field—and also serves on the Fund's Student Executive Committee as Co-Program Chair.
