I research the intersection of science, media, and society. I am particularly interested in media representations of science and environmental issues, scientists' role as public communicators, and the contributions of informational and entertainment media on public understanding of science. Some of my recent work has examined the processes underlying scientists' engagement in public communication activities, the effects of video games and television entertainment programs on public perceptions of science, and media depictions of health pandemics and controversial biomedical and technological innovations.
