Faculty in the Media

Newly appointed Co-Director of the Northeastern Masters in Security and Resilience Studies program, Daniel Aldrich, has made numerous appearances lately. Hear Aldrich talk about crime prevention on WBUR, Boston’s NPR affiliate, and read an article on his new research by Richard Florida at The Atlantic‘s City Lab.

In addition, Aldrich was featured in an ABC NewsRadio program, “Japan in Focus”; his forthcoming book will examine the aftermath of the 2011 nuclear disaster in Japan. He has also co-written an article for the Washington Post on Japan’s efforts to restart its nuclear power program.

The Boston Globe also profiled Co-Director of the Northeastern University Masters in Security and Resilience Studies program, Daniel Aldrich. The piece focuses on Aldrich’s personal experience with his family as they narrowly avoided Hurricane Katrina and then, like so many, returned home to face life-changing consequences they had never anticipated. These events inspired and informed the new direction he found himself taking in his work: exploring how and why some communities survive a crisis, while others do not.

Professor of Management, Healthcare Systems and Health Policy Timothy Hoff, also of the D’Amore-McKim School of Business, published a guest expert commentary in the nation’s leading healthcare industry trade journal, Modern Healthcare. His piece discusses the emerging and evolving role of nurse practitioners in the U.S. healthcare system.

Associate Professor of Political Science, Public Policy and Urban Affairs, Thomas J. Vicino, spoke to the Washington Post about the roots of the riots and crisis in Baltimore; his remarks were extensively quoted in Post columnist E.J. Dionne’s piece on the subject.

Brian Helmuth, pro­fessor of Envi­ron­mental Sci­ence and Public Policy at the Northeastern Marine Science Center, with a team of inter­na­tional researchers, pub­lished a review in Climate Change Responses in November 2014, called “Beyond long-term averages: making biological sense of a rapidly changing world.” The piece emphasizes the need for “a new approach to under­standing and pre­dicting the impact of cli­mate change.” news@Northeastern ran a Q&A with professor Helmuth on his work and motivations behind the review.
