Social Sites: Instagram and Snapchat

Graduate Research
RUCD 120: Cognitive and Social Psychology of User Centered Design at Brandeis U, Year: Spring 2017

For this assignment, I chose two social sites, or platforms, and sketched the social tasks that can be done by the users. I compared the two platforms, described the intrinsic and extrinsic motivations for users to perform these tasks, and wrote about what I discovered.

Life at UMW

Year: Spring 2015
Tools: Canon EOS Rebel T5, lavalier microphones, iMovie

For the course Communications 310: Social Media, I worked on a viral video project called “Life at UMW.” The goal for this project was to work with a group to create a video about life at the University of Mary Washington and try to spread it around the internet as much as we could. The project also included a point system where we got points for shares/retweets/reblogs, likes, and views that way we could compare our success with our classmates’ groups. For this project I interviewed students for sound bites, and edited the video.
