Description

Presenter: Professor Liaquat Hossain

Abstract:

In my presentation, I will discuss the importance of integrated science for exploring global disasters and resilience. Theoretical and methodological foundations for integrated science and its application to global disasters and resilience will be provided.

My studies within the context of disasters such as bush fire, flood and tsunami, disaster medicine and public health preparedness will be discussed. I will also discuss my on-going work in Social Media Surveillance in Ebola Disasters and Dynamic Evolutionary Networks of Digital Disease Surveillance: A Meta-analysis of Ten Years of Research.

I will highlight how my research relates to the Monash University’s Centres/Institutes within the Faculty of Information Technology as well as University-wide trans-disciplinary research excellence initiatives for addressing societal and humanitarian challenges locally and globally.
