Specialty/Research Focus

New media; risk communication; mass-interpersonal communication via SNS


I investigate different facets of risk and the interaction they have with technology. I explore how technology utilization and communication structures the interpretation of individuals on dynamic social topics related to a variety of risk scenarios. I am also interested in how social interactions and needs are serviced via computer-mediated communication. I utilize semantic network analysis, content analysis, and survey research most often to explore these phenomena.
