Under the tutelage of Dr. Brenda Dervin, I began an exploration of how to employ her Sense-Making Methodology to media reception studies, audience studies, and fan studies. I am interested in how people make sense of their engagings with media products. My focus is on how they make sense moment-by-moment, as they move through these situations, and then how they see such engagings related to their everyday lives. Currently I am with the Virtual Worlds Research Group at Roskilde University to further such work by focusing on virtual worlds technologies.
