Disasters, Trust & Social Change Lab

We are an interdisciplinary group that conducts community-centered research to explore the psychology behind how disasters are understood, with a focus on the societal inequality and injustice by which risk profiles are defined.

Adaptive Built Environment Lab (ABEL)

The ABEL is a research laboratory focusing on how an adaptive built environment contributes to both the mitigations of the effect of Climate Change and to the health and well-being of its occupants.

Integrative Prevention trough Design Lab

The Integrative Prevention through Design Lab investigates ways to reduce hazards to human health and well-being through system resilience planning for dynamic built environments.


FIBER is launching the GatorCorps program in Fall 2023. The program will enroll members to increase levels of knowledge in disaster risk/resilience/adaptation science across the State of Florida. More information soon.
