Dan Muise

PhD Student

I research the roles of time, platform design, and media psychology in the consumption of political information, and their relation to system-level processes in political communication. My focus is the measurement of micro-level behaviors aggregating to new media’s most-discussed societal threats: political polarization and the modern news ecosystem. To this end, I have utilized international fieldwork, network analysis, laboratory and field experiments, survey methods, and longitudinal smartphone screen-recording, both in my academic pursuits and industry research. In my free time I love to be outdoors, play music, and play pool.
