Dr. Abdul-Akeem Sadiq joined the SPEA faculty in fall 2010. After completing his joint Ph.D. in Public Policy at Georgia State University and Georgia Institute of Technology in May 2009, he served as a lecturer in the Emergency Administration and Planning program at University of North Texas (UNT). In 2010, Dr. Sadiq, along with Dr. David McEntire and Kailash Gupta, conducted research in Haiti after the 2010 devastating earthquake. This research, which was funded by the National Science Foundation, focused on understanding mass fatality management issues following the earthquake. Currently, Dr. Sadiq is conducting a study on Chemical Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS). He hopes to understand the impediments to the implementation of CFATS.
