As a researcher of media studies, I adopt both qualitative and quantitative social science methods. These include ethnography, interviews, focus groups, discourse analysis, surveys, and meta-analyses. I am using R for my statistical analyses.
I am interested in studying
the social & cultural implications of emerging communication technologies on children, youth, and families, especially Asian communities.
