Dr. Anaís Delilah Roque Antonetty (she/her/ella) is an environmental social scientist and anthropologist. Currently, her research is interested in how households and communities experience, prepare for and respond to food, energy, and water (FEW) insecurity in the wake of a high impact 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 uses participant observation, interviews, survey, photovoice, social network, secondary data, participatory mapping, amongst others in her research. Dr. Roque is part of several interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary teams that advance research in the areas of water reuse, environmental justice, community resilience, social vulnerability, and community-based collaboration. She conducts research in Puerto Rico, Phoenix (AZ) and the U.S. Mexico Borderlands. Research publications can be found here.
