John joined ODI in October 2016 as Senior Research Fellow in the Risk and Resilience programme, following more than 25 years working on disaster risk reduction (DRR) and international development as an academic researcher, independent consultant and in the NGO sector.

John has worked on many aspects of DRR, mostly on socio-economic vulnerability, community resilience, vulnerability/risk assessment methodologies, policy and institutional aspects of disaster management, and project planning and evaluation.  The application of academic research to improve operational practice is a particular interest and much of John’s research output has been aimed at guiding practitioners.
