Hi, there!

First off - thanks for stopping by.

My name is Elodie Fichet and I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Communication at the University of Washington (2017 graduation). I focus on Public Relations, Crisis Communication, New Technologies and Creativity/Innovation. I look at public relations and crisis communication practitioners and how new technologies as well as the use of creativity affect campaigns development and implementation but also planning and response to crises. My goal is to assess practices and in turn act as catalyst to help practitioners be as creative and innovative as possible to remain at the cutting edge of the field and deliver optimal value to their clients. 

As a result, I do work both in the academic and in the professional realms.

When I am not working or doing research, you can find me travelling, fostering dogs (which will soon turn into adopting one, we know that...), watch movies, read *for fun*, do arts and crafts, hike or bake. I'm rarely unoccupied.
