Tom Logan is a PhD candidate whose research is at the intersection of 1) Urban and civil systems, 2) Risk analysis and uncertainty, and 3) Resilience and adaptation to a changing climate. The projects he works on are strongly interdisciplinary. He is currently working with complex-adaptive models (that couple urban development processes, natural hazards, and behavioral feedbacks) and predictive statistics to build understanding of the evolution of risk and resilience to natural hazards.
Tom is a recipient of the Fulbright New Zealand Graduate Award and the Rackham Pre-Doctoral Fellowship. He is also a leader of the Michigan University-Wide Sustainability and Environment Initiative (MUSE); the research community for sustainability scholars at the University of Michigan.
