I'm a Senior Lecturer in the School of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas. In my current research, I am attempting to answer questions about how new media and traditional media, especially videogames and film, elicit emotions. Why do different media tend to elicit different kinds of emotions? Why are some emotional responses widespread while others vary among particular audiences? How do individual works and genres generate specific emotions? I also have interests in a number of other topics, including documentary film, Asian film, and video/media production.

My CV is here. You can see my publications here.
