Nnenia Campbell is executive director of the Bill Anderson Fund and a research associate with the Natural Hazards Center at the University of Colorado Boulder. Campbell’s work with the Bill Anderson Fund supports leadership, professional development, and research training among historically underrepresented minority doctoral students studying hazards and disasters. Her work with the Natural Hazards Center translates empirical research on the social aspects of disasters into tools and information products designed for practitioners and decision-makers, emphasizing inclusive engagement.

Campbell’s research interests center on the intersections between disaster vulnerability and resilience within marginalized communities and on the role that community-based organizations play in disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. Her current research collaborations include projects related to disaster planning and response capacity among food banks and other community-based organizations; the formation and evolution of long term recovery communities; and the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on youth and older adults.
