Anuradha Mukherji is an Associate Professor of Urban and Regional Planning at East Carolina University. She received her PhD in Architecture from the University of California at Berkeley in the fields of disaster planning and housing policy and development; a master's from Texas A&M University at College Station, and a bachelors degree in Architecture from the Center for Environmental Planning and Technology (CEPT) University in Ahmedabad, India.
Her work focuses on the ability of communities to embed disaster risk reduction into the planning of cities and regions, and on the sociopolitical institutions that shape community recovery and the built environment after a disaster. Current research includes a study of pre-disaster hazard mitigation plan implementation in coastal North Carolina; an investigation of the developmental impacts of federal buyout programs implemented in eastern North Carolina after Hurricane Floyd; and a study of land-use change as a disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation strategy in the coastal areas of Japan impacted by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.
