Assistant Professor Scott B. Miles of Western Washington University’s Huxley College of the Environment has been awarded the Next Generation of Hazards and Disasters Researchers’ Fellowship from the National Science Foundation.
The fellowship will provide Miles with a set of experienced researchers of hazard and disaster studies as mentors. These mentors will provide Miles with guidance, collaboration, networking and feedback to assist him in writing, research and conducting disaster reduction community service. The fellowship will also bolster Miles’ fundraising capabilities for future research and service projects.
