CSHub Ph.D. candidate Ipek Bensu Manav first studied engineering to design structures that could defy natural hazards. Since joining CSHub, however, she's realized how resilience engineering extends far beyond design.

In this MIT News piece, she explains how CSHub has helped her explore resilience engineering's political and social dimensions.
