Mass Communication - Sports Broadcasts

Professional Interests

My professional interests include organizational decisions that effect live remote sports productions, organizational leadership communication (both internal and external), and pedagogical practices and how we effectively transfer knowledge to others.

My main methodological approaches are experiments, surveys, and content analysis, all through a quantitative lens.
