Dr. Eva (Evalyna) Bogdan is an environmental and disaster sociologist. She has studied and practiced at the intersection of society and environment, focusing on topics such as floods, fuels, food, and farming, around the world in the Netherlands, Namibia, New Zealand, and various parts of Canada. In the context of these topics, her focus has been on perceptions, policies, practices, power dynamics, and participation of stakeholders. To examine complex socio-environmental problems, she applies an interdisciplinary lens with expertise in economic development, local government administration, community-based research and engagement, and adult education.

There are many opportunities for learning and changes that arise when crises and disasters occur. Evalyna is particularly interested in creating innovative educational and engagement strategies to strengthen societal disaster resilience. Examples of these strategies include the We’re Ready! Community Disaster Preparedness as community workshops and as student practicum training which she developed as a Postdoctoral Associate at the University of Calgary, and the Flood Resilience Challenge Serious Role-Playing Game which she developed as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Waterloo.
