McGreevy HECL Profile Update (June 21, 2019)
I am a PhD Candidate in Integrative Conservation and Anthropology, and my research explores the connection between disaster vulnerability and natural resource use.
My dissertation project, funded by the NSEP Boren Fellowship, studies the influence of Hurricane Matthew and the drought that immediately followed it on small-scale farmers in Haiti’s Southern Peninsula. I examine factors leading to disaster vulnerability and adaptation of resource users to multiple disasters in quick succession.
Research Interests: Coupled human and natural systems, vulnerability and resilience, land use and land cover change, anthropology of disasters, economic anthropology, remote sensing, natural resource use modelling, integrative social and ecological research, Haiti, New Orleans and the Caribbean
