Mabel Cristina Marulanda Fraume

Assistant Professor - Research Lead, Business Continuity Management & Integrated Emergency Management Program

Dr. Mabel Marulanda is the Lead Researcher and an Assistant Professor of the Business Continuity Management and Integrated Emergency Management at Rabdan Academy. Her research and teaching interests focus on natural disaster risk assessment and risk management.
Mabel worked as a researcher for the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile and the Technical University of Catalonia. She has worked at and for international, national and local institutions, and private companies, including multilateral organizations such as the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Inter-American Development Bank, the World Bank, the Disaster Risk Management Office in Colombia and Ingeniar Ltda.
Understanding, identifying, and measuring disaster risk through its assessment, and developing disaster risk indicators to communicate to different audiences, are useful tools that allow cities, countries, sectors, institutions, to create and implement structural and non-structural plans to prevent, reduce and finance potential damages and losses, and to respond efficiently to the impact of striking events. Mabel has been involved with different teams performing activities related to assessment of risk, indicators development and capacity building. Within the most known publications at global level, she participated in the development of the Global Risk Assessments for the Global Assessments Reports 2013 and 2015, and the Global Risk Atlas in 2017 of UNISDR. She is author and co-author of a number of journal articles and technical reports.
Mabel is originally from Colombia, she received a BsC in Civil Engineering in Manizales, Colombia and a PhD in Structural Analysis in Barcelona, Spain.
Mabel is a passionate of outdoor activities, she loves hiking, and everything related to mountains, she loves dancing, reading, traveling to know different cultures, while meeting and talking to people and trying new food.
