Humanitarian Crisis Management


PhD project:
Enhancing smart disaster governance: assessing the potential of the net-centric approach

Promotor: Prof. dr. Peter Groenewegen
Mentor: Dr. Julie Ferguson 

I am a PhD student at the Department of Organization Sciences. I explore how different humanitarian agencies map, interpret and govern (online) information networks in their efforts to respond to natural and man-made disasters and crises. My PhD is part of the NWO-funded Smart Governance project. 

I will carry out an historical analysis of recent disasters, specifically the Haiti earthquake (2010) and the Philippines typhoon (2013). I will combine this will ethnographic research in current disaster areas (e.g. the 2015 Nepal Earthquake) and a multi-layered network analysis, looking at contacts between NGOs, information streams, social media, and connections to local communities.
