Craig Trumbo, a research associate professor in the Office of Health Promotion Research, will be supported by a grant from the Decision Risk and Management Sciences program at the National Science Foundation to conduct a survey of Gulf Coast residents concerning their perception of future hurricane risk in the wake of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The project, “Proximity to extreme events: The effect of Katrina-Rita on optimistic bias in Gulf Coast counties,” is being funded under NSF’s program for Katrina-related Small Grants for Exploratory Research. Trumbo investigates risk perception and communication in a variety of contexts, especially public health and the environment.
