EERI is pleased to announce the winners of the EERI 2020 Student Paper Awards! The winners will be honored at the EERI award ceremony at the 2021 Annual Meeting.
The Graduate Student Paper Award goes to Sabine Loos (M.EERI, 2016) of Stanford University, with co-authors for the paper, “G-DIF: A geospatial data integration framework to rapidly estimate post-earthquake damage.” Sabine’s co-authors include David Lallemant, Jack Baker, Jamie McCaughey, Sang-Ho Yun, Nama Budhathoki, Feroz Khan, Ritika Singh.
Sabine uses statistical learning techniques that bridge engineering with the natural and social sciences to develop tools to support effective and equitable disaster recovery. The transdisciplinary nature of her work has led her to collaborate with Kathmandu Living Labs, the World Bank, NASA-JPL, Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, and others. She also co-chaired the recent Natural Hazards Center Researchers' Meeting devoted to ethical usage of data for disaster research and co-hosted the Risk & Resilience DAT/Artathon focused on developing data visualizations using disaster data. In the final year of her Ph.D. from Stanford University, she holds a master's degree in Sustainable Design & Construction from Stanford University (2018) and a bachelor's degree from The Ohio State University (2016).
