Davlasheridze, Meri individual record
Assistant Professor

My overall research focuses on economic impacts of natural disasters, vulnerability, adaptation, and general public policy concerning disaster mitigation and recovery. In my research I examine how effective federal and local disaster policies are in mitigating hurricane induced property and employment losses. I study individual and societal responses to flood risk exposure. I am interested in the behavior responses of individuals to public provision of flood protection as well as to general disaster aid. I examine long run adaptation through individuals' location choices and spatial sorting as a mechanism of adjustment to the threat of extreme events. I also examine labor market impacts of disasters and spillovers across economic sectors.
