奥申斯基博士的教学及研究领域广泛涉及土地使用、环境规划,并着重强调规划的自然风险。他在灾后重建规划、地震风险规划及政策、环境影响评估方面发表过大量的出版物。他曾从事的研究包括:美国中部地区地震风险,1994年美国加州地震对土地使用和规划的影响,美国中部地区地震预防、地震安全应对指南,土地使用规划中对地震带的使用,泥石流预防政策,泥石流灾害预防系统投资,本地山区开发政策。他曾负责美国加利福尼亚州环境质量法案的本地实施综合性研究。

近期,奥申斯基教授从事的研究是大规模地震后的重建与恢复,如1995年日本阪神大地震,这也是他于2004-2005年在日本京都大学防灾研究所任访问教授时的主要课题。2005年9月,他全面参与了新奥尔良卡特里娜飓风灾后规划进程。

他出版过一本关于泥石流预防政策的专著,为美国联邦应急管理署所写得到两篇关于地震安全的专论,一篇为全美规划协会拟写的关于山区规划的专论,以及一篇即将出版的1994年美国加州地震及1995年日本阪神地震重建的论文。

 

 

Dr. Olshansky’s teaching and research cover land use and environmental planning, with an emphasis on planning for natural hazards.  He has published extensively on post-disaster recovery planning, planning and policy for earthquake risks, and environmental impact assessment. His previous work included studies of earthquake risk in communities in the Central U.S., land use planning implications of the 1994 Northridge California earthquake, earthquake preparedness in the Central U.S., guidelines for seismic safety advocates, the use of seismic zonation in land use planning, policies for landslide hazard reduction, financing landslide mitigation, and local hillside development policies. He also completed a comprehensive study of the local implementation of the California Environmental Quality Act.

More recently, Professor Olshansky has studied recovery after several major earthquakes, most notably the Kobe, Japan earthquake of 1995. He spent the 2004-2005 academic year studying this topic as a Visiting Professor at Kyoto University, Disaster Prevention Research Institute. Since September 2005 he has been closely monitoring the post-Katrina planning process in New Orleans.
Publications include a book on landslide policy, two monographs on seismic safety for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, one monograph on hillside planning for the American Planning Association, and a forthcoming monograph on recovery following the 1994 Northridge and 1995 Kobe earthquakes.
