Hiba Baroud, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, is available for media interviews and commentary on the infrastructure challenges faced by Texas as it recovers from extreme winter weather.


Baroud is an expert on infrastructure and climate change as they pertain to extreme weather events. She can speak to the remaining issues Texans are facing now that the weather has passed (such as lack of water) and how impacted areas (especially those like Texas with limited exposure to winter weather) can prepare for future events.


She can discuss:

  • The residual dangers to residents' live after extreme weather has passed, such as lack of food and water, lack of power, and road infrastructure issues
  • The importance of recovery efforts, rather than prevention of such events
  • Why cities must prepare before extreme weather hits, making future-based predictions and not just relying on historical data to understand potential concerns

How weather disasters are becoming more frequent and intense, therefore costing us more
