The U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory is forming a new research center to enhance resiliency for major disruptive events, such as natural disasters and climate change. The Center for Integrated Resiliency Analyses (CIRA) will be led by ESM alumnus and Argonne researcher John Hummel ('73 E SC, '75 MS EMS). Hummel is a modeling and simulation expert focusing on national security analyses, such as climate and environmental impacts on national security.
