Tourism Safety & Crowd Science
UNLV researchers studying Tourism Safety & Crowd Science (TSCS) conduct, coordinate, identify, and disseminate interdisciplinary and international research on effective crowd management strategies. Empirical evidence is used to develop crowd manager decision-making frameworks and tools to enhance the safety of crowd-based events.
TSCS researchers are working to identify effective tourism safety strategies and crowd management techniques for application in a variety of public and private places, including, but not limited to:
- Amusement Parks
- Parking Lots
- Transport Stations/ Thoroughfares
- Houses of Worship
- Retail Outlets
- Recreational Centers
Students interested in gaining research experience and earning academic credit by working as a TSCS researcher should contact Dr. Tamara Madensen-Herold at Tamara.Madensen@unlv.edu to schedule an interview. Download the research assistant application.
