My name is Natalie Coleman, and I recently graduated with a bachelor’s in civil engineering, a minor in hispanic studies, and a certificate in international engineering. Currently, I am pursuing my PhD in civil engineering at Texas A&M University with funding from the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program. For the past three years, I have worked as a research assistant for the Urban Resilience.AI lab. My interdisciplinary research focuses on the complex relationships between natural hazards, infrastructure service disruptions, and the community. For example, I investigated the influencing factors and risk inequalities associated with a household’s susceptibility to service disruptions during Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Florence, and Hurricane Michael. I am also leading an AggiE-Challenge team investigating the mobility patterns and social distancing of different communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. I hope to use my education and research experience to promote and advocate for equitable community resilience against natural hazards. In addition to my research, I enjoy mentoring undergraduate students and volunteering with different organizations. I am a former Undergraduate Research Ambassador and a former Executive Officer for the ASPIRE mentoring program. Starting this semester, I am excited to be working on a new international project with Engineers Without Borders for a village in the Dominican Republic.
