Dr. Wu is the Canada Research Chair (Tier II) in Resilience and Assistant Professor at the School of Social Work. With an interdisciplinary background (architecture, landscape architecture, regional and community planning, and social work), his community-based interdisciplinary research and emerging practice have nuancedly explored disaster-driven redevelopment of human and non-human settlements through the lens of environmental justice and social justice in the global context of climate change, disaster, and willful acts of violence. His innovative socio-ecological protection strategies aim to stimulate the transdisciplinary application of engineering, social, cultural, ecological, economic, and political dimensions into the empowerment of grassroots-led community development initiatives that contribute to the enhancement of inhabitants and co-inhabitants’ health and well-being, advancing resilience and sustainability at individual, family, and community levels, and promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion in community development.

Dr. Wu has been serving as principal/co-investigator and/or collaborator on 64 multi-investigator nationally and internationally funded research projects (with over $9.5 million in research funding and interdisciplinary teams of scholars across 30 countries) regarding human-animal-environment interactions in the global context of climate change, disasters, and other crisesHe is currently accepting new master and doctoral students (with stipend) and full-time postdoctoral research associates (with salary) for ongoing projects. Researchers interested in getting involved and learning from his research projects (see below) are encouraged to contact haorui.wu@dal.ca with a copy of C.V., academic transcript (unofficial is acceptable), and a cover letter.
