Joshua G. Behr is a research associate professor at the Virginia Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation Center at Old Dominion University. Behr’s research focuses on community resilience, catastrophic events, evacuation behavior, recurrent flooding, and the disposition of medically fragile and vulnerable populations in the post-event recovery process. Behr uses this research to forecast storm damage, displaced populations, recovery times, well being of populations, and cost pressure on health systems, in addition to developing indicators of household and community vulnerability in the modeled recovery processes.
