Traveling has always been a major part of a professor’s career. This past summer, GSPIA’s Dr. Louise Comfort spent a month at the Middle East Technical University (METU) in Ankara, Turkey on a research exchange program supported by the European Union Center of Excellence at the University of Pittsburgh and the sister European Union Center at METU. At METU, Dr. Comfort’s mission was to develop a collaborative research agenda with the Center for Disaster Mitigation and Implementation Research (DMRC), directed by Dr. Burcak Erkan. While the initial purpose of the research exchange was to create an agenda for collaborative study of major seismic events, given Turkey’s high exposure to earthquake risk, the exchange quickly evolved from an earthquake specific project to a study of information flow and decision processes in a major coal mine disaster.
