Personal profile

Research interests

My PhD is looking to determine how social media services (such as Facebook) provide community contexts that facilitate sustained individual and community capacities for anticipating and preparing for natural disaster events.


My other research interests include:
- How peoples' relationships with others and their community influence the interpretation of risk and uncertainty around natural hazard and health threats.
- How relationships and community influence how people do or don't undertake risk reduction and self-protective behaviours.
- The influence of new technologies such as social media on the way people participate in relationships and community.
