We Study Instabilities in Geosystems using Mathematical Analysis (SIGMA)
Mathematical models, abstract and simplified conceptualizations of the real world, play a central role in both science and decision-making, but they are also prone to bias and misrepresentation. We take a proactive approach to the inclusion of the diverse voices provided by different scientific disciplines, the practical knowledge assembled by practitioners, and the often-ignored perspectives of communities at risk.

Mathematics is often seen as a cold, formal and monolithic process of sheer intellection, but to us it is an inclusive, intuitive and human process – a community project. Through our teaching, mentoring and communicating, we seek to listen, understand, and create a shared vision for reducing disaster risk in an increasingly uncertain world.
