Briar's doctoral research in Construction Engineering & Management (CEM) focused on understanding the housing safety perceptions of those involved with Puerto Rico's informal construction sector and how these housing safety perceptions do and do not align with structural performance assessments of informally constructed housing in hurricanes and earthquakes in Puerto Rico. This project aimed to determine local preference and understanding of building components that are safe; assess the structural performance of shelters in multi-hazard environments; and create a communication design to assist communities and organizations in enhancing their resiliency to natural hazards.
