About

Marie Bond is interested in the structural integrity and vulnerability of infrastructure in areas prone to natural disasters such as earthquakes. She plans to investigate the disparities of infrastructure resilience across countries of varying wealth. Ultimately, she hopes to develop a long-term solution to insufficient infrastructure around the globe, especially in underdeveloped regions.

As a member of the Engineering2Empower Technical Team, Bond conducts non-linear time history analysis on housing designs in order to make them safer and more cost-effective.

Research Interests
I am interested in the structural integrity and vulnerability of infrastructure in areas prone to natural disasters such as earthquakes. Specifically, I would like to learn more about the disparities of infrastructure resilience across countries of varying wealth. Ultimately, I would like to develop a long-term solution to insufficient infrastructure around the globe, especially in underdeveloped regions.

Current Research
Currently, I am researching potential solutions to the disconnect between day-one disaster relief efforts and long-term solutions. Particularly, I am exploring various design options for transitional shelters. Additionally, I am investigating what type of policies are needed in regional and NGO levels to offer a bridge between short-term disaster relief and long-term recovery options, as well as assisting other Kellogg Scholars on their Haitian micro development team.
