In This Installment of Access the Experts
School of Public Administration Assistant Professor Thomas Jamieson, Ph.D., answers the question: "What are some good ways to become self-sustainable in case of a global catastrophe?"
An expert in emergency management and disaster science, Jamieson takes special research interests in how information and public opinion affect policymaking, especially during periods of crisis. In his research, he argues that these periods create extraordinary conditions to create change and pursue policies that would otherwise be all but impossible. In his teaching efforts he aims to foster learning through facilitating a fun, inclusive environment; through setting high expectations for students; and through providing opportunities for students to develop their skills.
