Ryan in Brooklyn

Welcome to students, colleagues, mentors, friends and family alike!

I am a second-year media studies PhD student at the University of Oregon’s School of Journalism and Communication in Eugene, Oregon. It’s a big year; I’m preparing for my comprehensive exams, and I expect to begin writing my dissertation, tentatively entitled “Table for… Everybody?”: Attitudes vs. Behaviors Pertaining to Smartphone Use in the Restaurant Environment by Summer 2014.

Please bear with me as I complete the transition to this new WordPress-powered site. Some content has gone offline; it will return soon.
