Assistant Professor, Communication (Affiliate)

Research Overview

Situated in the broad area of media effects paradigm, my research interests include understanding the psychological and physiological effects of interactive media on key user experience and user engagement outcomes. My studies adopt an interdisciplinary approach by combining theories from various disciplines such as media effects, human-computer interaction, social cognition and health communication. I am currently teaching courses on computer mediated communication and mass media systems.
