Hello! I'm Simone


 I am an environmental sociologist and critical scholar of climate adaptation and disaster resilience. I work with communities and partners to disrupt harmful cycles of exclusion and disempowerment contributing to environmental inequalities. I am currently working with collaborators on several projects to assess key drivers of disaster vulnerability, local government capacity, and environmental-related migration along the Gulf Coast. I also work on a number of projects related to coastal restoration and environmental justice politics in Louisiana. Please reach out and connect with me via email, and follow me on Twitter: @Simone_Domingue.

Research A

My past research has critically analyzed disaster resilience initiatives and federal disaster policy and argues that these measures reproduce social inequalities.
