Kevin Henry is a geographer with the USGS Western Geographic Science Center and is located at the USGS California Water Science Center in Sacramento, California.
Kevin Henry researches risk and vulnerability to natural hazards, using geographic information systems, agent-based modeling, and advanced data visualization techniques. His recent work involves visualizing hazard exposure and vulnerability analyses through emerging interactive web mapping frameworks. He also researches community vulnerability through modeling vehicular evacuation from tsunamis using agent-based simulation. The work aims to identify strategies to improve a community's capacity to evacuate, to inform emergency management practices.
