Focus of Graduate Studies:
The intersection of Technology and Health Communication with Quantitative methods
My research focuses upon the intersection of technology and health communication. Particularly, I am interested in ways that new media technology (e.g., video games) can influence health outcomes including attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, and knowledge acquisition. Also, I have a particular interest in the theoretical concept of ‘presence’ (i.e., social presence, telepresence) in technology user experiences. My interest in presence merges research from a variety of technology domains (i.e., virtual reality, computer-mediated communication, human-computer interaction).
My course work and research projects have prepared me to teach courses related to New media technology/Communication technology, Health communication, Intercultural communication, and Quantitative research methods.
