Cassandre is a PhD candidate at the Université Paris Est, Paris. She is interested in the local practices to face urban risk and crisis. She points out the highly fragmentation of expertise, actors and devices to face both, with an analysis that lies at the intersection between geography of risk and crisis and the sociology of administration and organization. Supported by the Institute for Research and Innovation in Society (IFRIS), Paris, she explores the deeper relation between risk and crisis expertise, especially when risks experts are called to become crisis advisors.
