NMSU researchers dive into the humanitarian response to the COVID-19 crisis

LAS CRUCES – When the COVID-19 pandemic began firing across the nation and the globe two years ago, communities had to not only process but respond quickly to what happened with very limited information about the virus. Two researchers at New Mexico State University collaborated with colleagues in Wyoming and Utah to study these responses and identify some strategies to help communities be more prepared for humanitarian disasters.

Barry Brewer, associate professor of supply chain management, and Ali Mchiri, a doctoral student at the NMSU College of Business, participated in a study examining the preparation and humanitarian response to the pandemic as it unfolded in the United States and around the world. Other members of the research team included Corey Billington, an entrepreneur at the University of Wyoming, and Clark Pixton, assistant professor of global supply chain at Brigham Young University.
