On Tuesday, April 27, 2010, at 2:00 PM EDT, NSF will host a webcast featuring three researchers who visited Haiti following the January Earthquake—geophysicist Eric Calais of Purdue University, civil engineer Reginald DesRoches of Georgia Tech, and social scientist Liesel Ritchie of the Natural Hazards Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder—to discuss their work in Haiti and around the world. They will be joined by social scientist Dennis Wenger, who will discuss how U.S. and global agencies use disaster research to save lives.
