Education

Annenberg School for Communications (USC)

Ph.D., Communication Theory & Research:  I study new media platforms and technologies, producing content to conduct formative and summative evaluation for material on interactive platforms. My dissertation covered the use of interactive delivery of emotionally-sensitive information to cancer patients and their significant others, comparing it to delivery via linear video. I tested the differences between the two delivery modes on patients'/S.O.'s cognitive and affective processing and behavioral intentions.
