Houston’s research focuses on communication at all phases of disasters, and on the mental health effects and political consequences of community crises. Recent and current research projects have examined the impact of media coverage of terrorism on children and adults, the role of new media during disasters, and the capacity for using information communication technologies to increase community resilience. These projects are located at the intersections of the literature addressing disasters, communication, media, public health, mental health and political socialization.
