We study how complex weather and climate hazards interact with people's lives, infrastructures, and communities, posing significant risk to public safety. In particular we work with experts like emergency managers, weather forecasters, and policy makers to understand how to improve warning systems and communication of risks to those who are most vulnerable.

This is the latest project of RED Lab, dedicated to addressing the need to improve weather warnings for Spanish-speaking communities in the U.S., with insights from different sectors for more effective communication. Check out the latest news on the project.
