Research

Our world-renowned faculty engages in research relating to the field of Emergency Management. Research will inform public policy, focus on loss of personal freedoms during times of crisis, and how to restore and reestablish freedoms once situations are stablized.

As with most emergencies and crises, there are stressors that present a multitude of psychological impacts across all demographics. Research on the psychological impact of crisis, post-deployment psychological welfare, and recovery are essential to ensure successful perpetuation of devastated communities.

Research will also focus on disease, prevention, vaccines, treatments, technology, applications and more.
