This site is devoted to my projects, research, musings, questions, and observations in the world of Disaster and Emergency Management. Much of the material here currently centers on my recently completed thesis research into the possible application of Co-citation Analysis and Knowledge Domain Visualization (KDViz).
Although detailing my thesis research and related matters occupies many of the pages, I will also post on work in progress, and will blog on a variety of EDM topics (sometimes presented with my particular sense of humor…) as my time and attention span allows.

Many of these thoughts and ideas in these pages are “works in progress” and may not represent my current thinking on a topic. In some cases material may simply reflect a passing, momentary opinion. It is best to consider the material here as my way of ”thinking aloud”. Any unpublished materials on this site are not presented as works of formal scholarship and I ask that they never be misrepresented or critiqued as such.
