Jackie is the Senior Project Manager at the National Center for Disaster Preparedness. With a career-long focus exclusively on hazards and disasters, she’s gained broad knowledge and expertise in disaster preparedness, response, and resilience. Beginning as an earth scientist, she worked in academia to bridge the gap between physical science research and its applications to disaster risk reduction. Her doctoral work explored the applications of a crowd-sourced terrain modeling technology called ‘structure-from-motion,’ focusing on the low cost and accessibility as compared to traditional modeling methods involving satellites and radar. She has researched hurricane evacuation policies pre- and post-Katrina, and undertaken extensive international case studies of regions vulnerable to volcanic hazards as part of the STREVA project (Strengthening Resilience in Volcanic Areas of Latin America and the Caribbean). Most recently she led coordination of Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts through the Long Island Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (LIVOAD), working with non-profit organizations and some of the most vulnerable populations devastated by the storm.

Her advocacy for public access to disaster-specific knowledge has been recognized in awards for science outreach, and she has spoken at the annual conferences of the American Geophysical Union and the European Geophysical Union, as well as numerous smaller conferences.
