About Frederique de Groen
Frederique de Groen is an expert on the quantification of natural hazard impact assessments and modelling human responses. She is involved in the continuous development of Delft-FIAT, RA2CE and the Criticality Tool, which are used to assess natural hazard impacts on buildings, road networks and critical infrastructures. Her interest also lies in the connection of the physical with the social, using for example Agent-Based Modelling to investigate human responses to climate change effects. With these kinds of methods, she contributes to a new research track within Deltares aiming at improving the understanding of relocation as adaptation strategy in coastal areas.
