David AbramsonDr. David Abramson's work focuses on population health issues associated with disaster-related or stressor-related recovery and resiliency. He has studied natural and man-made disasters including Katrina, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the Joplin tornado, H1N1, Superstorm Sandy, and Zika. With funding from NIH, he has extended his Katrina study to be one of the longest-running population studies of disaster recovery. 

In 2014, Dr. Abramson brought his research program to NYU’s College of Global Public Health, where he is a clinical associate professor and director of the Population Impact, Recovery, and Resilience Lab, PiR2.  His lab focuses on applying social science theory and methodology to the study of disaster effects on vulnerable populations, and to developing an understanding of resilience and long-term disaster recovery.  Learn more about Dr. Abramson’s contributions.
