Under the guidance of Professor Alexandros Taflanidis, Marie Bond is researching the connection between humanitarian relief efforts and long-term recovery after disasters. She is investigating what types of policies are needed in regional and NGO levels to offer a bridge between short-term disaster relief and long-term recovery options. Ultimately, Bond hopes to find a structural engineering solution to the global challenge of inadequate disaster relief. She is also assisting other Kellogg Scholars on their Haitian microdevelopment team. 

Bond is also a member of the Grand Challenges Scholars Program, in which she addresses the National Academy of Engineering Grand Challenge, “Restoring and Improving Urban Infrastructure” through community engagement, multidisciplinary classes, and research.
