Donna Z. Davis
Director, Public Speaker, and Mother in Portland, Oregon
After a nearly a lifetime in Florida, I ventured to the Pacific Northwest where I've landed very happily in Portland, Oregon. I am the Director of the Strategic Communication master's program and the Oregon Reality (OR) Lab at the University of Oregon-Portland. My research explores immersive technologies as places and communities most often with vulnerable populations. I am also keenly interested in virtual identity both as we express it and interpret it and how it influences the way we communicate with and understand one another.
