Biography

Dr Adekola's expertise is in disaster risk management related to natural (e.g. flooding) or health (e.g. COVID-19) hazards. Her research explores the vulnerabilities within affected communities and the nature of the exposure. She views disasters as socially produced, recognising power asymmetries between groups and differences in expertise that shapes power, prestige, and privileges.

Dr Adekola's current research is on COVID-19 vaccine engagement in Scotland. The study considers COVID-19 as a disaster risk. It explores how stakeholders might collaboratively use science, and new technologies to create opportunities and solve societal problems for sustainable, resilient, and inclusive communities through enhanced understanding, policy and behavioral changes.

Before joining the University of Glasgow, Dr Adekola was a Lecturer and Programme Lead in Risk Management at Glasgow Caledonian University and a Research Associate at the National Centre for Resilience, School of Interdisciplinary Studies, Dumfries.

Research interests

Dr Adekola is a member of the School's Strategy and Technology Management research cluster.

Area of expertise
