Broadly speaking, my research involves the uses and effects of information originating from digital and emerging media environments. Perhaps more specifically, my current work is structured around the investigation of three topics. First, I am interested in the selection, use, and social effects of immersive digital technologies, with a specific emphasis on video games. Second, I am interested in understanding how uncivil online political communication affects the performance of democracy. Third, I am interested in understanding the ways that organizations use digital communication technologies to build and maintain relationships with key constituencies.
