I am an Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at Albion College.
I am currently learning to apply data science approaches to human communication models. I mainly work in R.
My traditional research expertise focuses on entertainment media, with specialization in how players learn from playing within rule systems (typically video games). I have published on educational digital games, morality and gaming, and audience uses of entertainment digital games.
My teaching includes a focus on media of all kinds, with focus on social media and how to use various platforms for professional and personal needs. My social media teaching includes training, development, and tutorials for various business and educational organizations.
