Born from Disaster
Co-founders Caitria and Morgan created a functional infrastructure for recovery after an EF3 tornado in their hometown of Monson, MA. Read more here.
Recovers.org is the idealization of the infrastructure they built: a clean, easy-to-use recovery software framework that can be deployed before a disaster to prepare communities.

Since receiving his S.B. and M.Eng. degrees from MIT, Alvin has worked in a range of industries, specializing in start-ups. He was previously a software engineer in San Francisco, CA for Crittercism, and in Cambridge, MA for LabLife (now part of LabGuru). He misses biology research from time to time.
Morgan O'Neill, Ph.D.
Co-founder, Chief Science Officer
Morgan has a B.Sc. in Physics from UNH and a PhD in Atmospheric Science from MIT. She has over 3 years of experience in political campaigns ranging from city council races to a presidential election. She is an MA-certified EMT-B and actively volunteers for an ambulance service.
Chief Operating Officer
Chris has experience helping organize community-level disaster relief on a large and small scale, including Hurricane Sandy, the Moore tornadoes, the Boles Fire. He holds a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering from MIT, where he performed clean energy research. He has an affinity for doing back-of-the-envelope calculations in everyday life.
Caitria has worked for Harvard Law Review and the US State Department, and brings legal, political and editorial experience to the team. When not organizing tornado relief, she spends time leading backpacking trips and reading. She holds an A.B degree in Government from Harvard University and has completed FEMA NIMS 700/800 ICS 100/200.
Chief Rescue Dog
Curie has shown amazing potential throughout her short but eventful career as a Chief Rescue Dog. In sniffing out opportunities to use her powers of adorability and cuddliness for good, she can corral the most gruff and disorganized volunteers with a abrupt bark and endearing waggle.
