Courtney Thompson

Assistant Professor

Research Interests

Dr. Thompson’s research in human-environment interactions examines relationships between social systems and natural hazard impacts using a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods, including GIS, survey analysis, and spatial statistics. Past research projects have included emergency management and hazard response assessments, hazard probability and potential hazards impact on public health, affordable housing, and hazmat-specific planning. Her current research examines how multiscalar indicators influence vulnerability using spatial, multilevel statistical models. Other current research projects are focused on identifying and quantifying the impact of risk perception and agency indicators on community vulnerability through the statistical analysis of survey data to enhance community scale hazard mitigation assessments with non-traditional vulnerability indicators.
