  • Biography

    My research focuses on understanding communication and media from a dynamic human centered complex systems perspective. I am partiularly interested in rethinking communication theories as changes in qualitative states occuring over time rather than as reductive, additive, linear, processes. Recent work focuses on the dynamics of persuasion, the role of the body in attitude change, destabilizing real world attractors through game play, and on how direct perception bypasses the mind to affect our motivational respones.
