Simone Domingue is an environmental sociologist and critical scholar of climate adaptation and disaster resilience. She works with communities and partners to disrupt harmful cycles of exclusion and disempowerment contributing to environmental and disaster recovery inequalities. She is currently working with collaborators on several projects to identify key drivers of disaster vulnerability, local government capacity, and environmental-related migration along the Gulf Coast. She also works on a number of projects related to coastal restoration and environmental justice politics in Louisiana.
