I am honored and thrilled to join Fielding’s School of Psychology as Professor and the Program Director for the Media Psychology program. My background includes more than 30 years of faculty experience and 19 years of academic administration at two U.S. universities and one Canadian university. My training is in social and forensic psychology, and my media psychology-related research has examined pretrial publicity, recorded criminal interrogations, and person recognition from surveillance photos and videos. I have been the author or co-author of research grants, books, book chapters, peer-reviewed articles, and articles in professional associations. At my previous universities, I taught a wide range of psychology courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels and supervised numerous master’s theses and doctoral dissertations.
At Fielding, we are proud to be recognized as leaders and innovators in Media Psychology, particularly at this time in which media and technology play such large roles in our professional and personal lives. Media psychology is the application of psychological science to the use, development, distribution, and impact of media and technology. Media psychology has been recognized by the American Psychological Association as a subdiscipline of Psychology since 1986. Fielding University’s School of Psychology offers doctoral, master’s, and certificate programs in Media Psychology. Our uniquely trained and qualified graduates pursue careers in business, entertainment, technology, design, education, research, and other areas. Learn more at fielding.edu/mediapsychology.
