Rebecca Ewert is a sociologist specializing in disaster, inequality, gender, and qualitative methods. Her book manuscript, Where There’s Smoke, There’s Fire: The Social Inequalities of Disaster Recovery, qualitatively examines how people recover economically and emotionally from a megafire disaster –and how social statuses such as class, gender, race, and age provide people with disparate resources to aid in the recovery process. Rebecca’s research has received awards from the Society for the Study of Social Problems, Environment and Technology Division, as well as from the American Sociological Association Section on Mental Health. She received her PhD in Sociology from the University of Chicago in 2021.
