Allison Reilly an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park. Her research focuses on identifying governance systems that enable resilient infrastructure and strong communities. She has a particular focus of recent on risk equity in rural, coastal communities vulnerable to sea-level rise, and how investments in transportation infrastructure that are integrated within broader resilience strategies may enable more just transitions. She is also a scholar in the area of federal disaster policy, and how the current paradigm fuels risk in the build environment.
She is the recipient of a 2022 NSF CAREER Award, and a 2019 National Academy of Science Gulf Coast Research Early-Career Fellowship. She is currently an associate editor in the area of risk and resilience for the ASCE Journal of Infrastructure Systems and an editorial boardmember for the journals Risk Analysis and Decision Analysis. Prior to her appointment at the University of Maryland, Dr. Reilly was a research fellow at the University of Michigan and a post-doctoral researcher at Johns Hopkins University. In addition, Dr. Reilly was a research analyst for a federally-funded research and development center in support of the Department of Homeland Security. Dr. Reilly holds an MS and Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from Cornell University and a BS in Civil Engineering from Johns Hopkins University.
