Dr. Anaís Delilah Roque Antonetty (she/her/ella) is an environmental social scientist and disaster anthropologist that studies resource insecurity and health in the Anthropocene. Currently, her research agenda is interested at how households and communities experience, prepare for and respond to food, energy, and water insecurity in the wake of a hazard (e.g., geophysical, climatological) or disaster. Dr. Roque is also interested in the health outcomes of such experiences and the extent that strategies to address insecurity shape pathways to better or worse health. Trained as a mixed methods scholar, Dr. Roque has used interviews, survey, photovoice, social network, secondary data, participatory mapping, amongst others in her research. Inspired by scholarship that embraces diverse epistemological approaches, Dr. Roque is part of several interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary teams that advance research at the intersections of environmental behavior’s, community resilience, social vulnerability, climate equity and justice, and community-based collaboration. She conducts research in Puerto Rico, Phoenix (AZ) and the U.S. Mexico Borderlands. Research publications can be found here.
Dr. Roque teaching approach encourages students to critically think about human-environmental relations while providing them with knowledge and practical skills they can use within and beyond the classroom for positive change. Dr. Roque's online and in-person courses include a mix of lecture and diverse activities for cross-disciplinary knowledge learning and creation. In Spring 2023 Dr. Roque is expected to open the Community Environmental Health & Justice Collaboratory. This lab will have opportunities for hands-on experience with environmental social science research (with a focus on the previously discussed research interests), student professional development and service opportunities.
