The Superstorm Research Lab (SRL) is a mutual aid research collective working to understand the changes in how New York City policy actors, NGO leaders, activists, volunteers, and residents are thinking about social, economic and environmental issues following Hurricane Sandy. We produce traditional academic articles, but we are also pushing the boundaries of what it means to do scholarly work founded on the desire to create change.

The Superstorm Research Lab is generously supported by the Institute for Public Knowledge and the Office of Sustainability via the Green Grants Program at New York University.
