Scientists in Action

My research explores the cognitive processing of media messages--with a particular focus on the impact of audio features on cognition and emotional response.
I often use psychophysiological measures--heart rate, skin conductance, facial EMG, and EEG--as a way to quantify these responses. Here you see two graduate students in the Institute for Communication Research monitor psychophysiological measures while a study participant watches a TV message in the next room.

If you're thinking about graduate school or are interested in using psychophysiological measures to investigate topics you are interested in, feel free to email me.
