Dr Michael Whitworth is an Associate Director in Engineering Geology/Geomorphology at AECOM, and a specialist on geohazards and risk. His work and research aims to evaluate the impact of hazards on the built environment. His focus on earthquake hazards are earthquake induced landslides and cascading hazards and the resilience of communities and infrastructure to these events.
Joshua Macabuag has a background in building design with a number of UK consultancies, a PhD in building damage predictions for tsunami, and now consults in catastrophe risk modelling to the World Bank and the (re)insurance sector. He is also an Urban Search & Rescue (USAR) Engineer with the UK team SARAID, with several deployments through both SARAID and the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism.
