Imaginarium XR lab: Transdisciplinary pedagogy in the Silicon Valley with David Jeong

Tuesday, March 5, 2024

5:30 p.m. 6:30 p.m. PT


Professor David Jeong earned a BA at UCLA, an MA from Harvard, and a PhD from the USC Annenberg School. He has assembled vectors of research that builds community for students at Santa Clara University and beyond. Visit with us and discuss the possibilities of communication research within and across vectors of virtual worlds.

Jeong leads the Santa Clara Media Lab, which is a collaborative research group investigating media technologies (social media, VR, games) from both a critical and data-driven perspective. The primary topics of research include but are not limited to: social media metrics, social media motivations and trends across each platform, platform governance, free speech, and hate speech, and human computer interaction. The Media Lab critically examines contemporary trends and messages, critiques the ethics and design of emerging technologies, as well as examines bias, hate speech, and toxicity on social media and online communities (e.g., games).
