This episode features Timothy James Cipriano, a geographer whose research is focused on hazards and disasters, urban and environmental studies, and disease geographies. He used to work with the UP Resilience Institute, and recently volunteered as a data validator for the UP COVID-19 Pandemic Response Team.

We talked about the significance of geography, why science should always be done with the people, collecting data during the pandemic, what the Philippines can learn from past disasters, ways to improve disaster risk reduction in the Philippines, and more.
