Andrew Pyle recently graduated from the Applied Communication Studies Master’s program at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock. The culmination of his MA work was a study examining the communication experiences of Public Information Officers in the Unified Command center in Houma, Louisiana during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill response. He is currently enrolled in the PhD program in Communication at George Mason University. Andrew wants to examine effective crisis communication practices in international contexts, and is interested in the intersection of crisis communication and complexity.  


Q & A with Andrew Pyle

What questions are you most excited about exploring these days?
Andrew: How well do crisis communication theories/practices apply across cultural contexts? How do we create an academic environment that is supportive of taking theory and applying it to real-world situations, issues, and problems?

 What other research/researchers are you tracking?  
Andrew: Dr. Arvind Singhal is doing really interesting work with Positive Deviance.

 What do you think is the most promising idea/theory emerging from complexity science for making a difference in fulfilling Plexus' mission?
Andrewa: Liberating structures - enabling people to collaborate and develop effective solutions in myriad ways that a rigid group or organization might not be able to recognize
