Angelique Mbabazi is a sophomore studying civil engineering at the University of Notre Dame. She will be supporting the ongoing collection, processing and analysis of data from the 2021 Haiti earthquake. In this role, Mbabazi will support the review, enrichment and assignment of photographs and audio from Haitian community members to volunteer engineers who will review and assess the imagery to classify the structure and its level of damage. Once the dataset is generated and fully assessed by this transnational collaboration, it will be analyzed to determine the lessons learned from this earthquake and what types of construction should be encouraged in the recovery.
