Cassandra Jean is earning a Ph.D. in the Department of Sociology and Criminology at Howard University and is a Cohort- 2 NCAS-M Fellow. I am interested in the NCAS-M focus area — Integrated Social Science in support of the NCAS-M theme: Interdisciplinary scientific research for building resilient communities against weather extremes. My recent research experience involves examining personal risk perceptions, communication tactics and disbursement, cultural worldview points, and coping mechanisms in impoverished areas, mainly ones with a high concentration of minorities, after precipitation events such as hurricanes and flash flooding with Dr. Terri Adams.
