Bio
Jeannette Sutton joined the University of Kentucky, as an Assistant Professor of Communication and Director of the Risk Division in July, 2014. Trained as a sociologist, Jeannette's primary focus is online informal communication in disaster, public alerts and warnings, and community resiliency. Much of her research investigates the evolving role of Information and Community Technology, including social media and mobile devices, for disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. Jeannette is a Principal Investigator on multiple research projects including the use of Twitter for disaster communications, enhanced public warnings for tsunami, and public alerting using mobile devices. Jeannette has received funding from the National Science Foundation, Department of Homeland Security, and Office of Naval Research. Dr. Sutton holds a PhD in sociology from the University of Colorado at Boulder and completed her postdoctoral training at the Natural Hazards Center.

Collaborative Research: Online Hazard Communication in the Terse Regime: Measurement, Modeling, and Dynamics

Researchers: Jeannette Sutton PI

Sponsors: National Science Foundation

Dates: September 1, 2015 to August 31, 2018


Courses Taught

Research and study of special topics in communication. The student proposes the specific study to be undertaken and formally contracts with a faculty supervisor for guidance and evaluation. Ordinarily, projects will require the production of written materials as a basis for the evaluation. May be repeated to a maximum of six credits.
Professors will conduct research seminars in topics or problems in which they have special research interests.
This course examines strategic risk and crisis communication research, theory, and practices. Special emphasis is placed on crisis planning, media relationships, image restoration, ethical responses, and organizational learning.
