Research & Development
Sarah Dyson, Ph.D.
She lives in Jonesboro, Arkansas, home of the largest mosquitoes in the state, where she is an adjunct instructor at East Arkansas Community College and Corporate faculty at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology in Pennsylvania. Her research investigates how game play and media affect viewer identity, attitudes, and behaviors. Grounded in theories of psychology and motivation, my research focuses on developing a systematic understanding of how individuals transfer skill from videogame play to real life events such as workplace behaviors and relationships. These concepts have guided my academic pursuits and resulted in multiple lines of research.

Alec Balasescu, Ph.D.
He is an Anthropologist by training, or as some would say a Philosopher with data. He approaches the world, and his work, through the lenses of this science. He finished his Ph.D. at UC Irvine, in 2004, and has been active in both public and private domains in various capacities, while continuing to teach in different university settings, both online and in class.
His experience spans 6 different countries on three continents in which he has lived and worked in the past 23 years, since leaving his native Romania.
His research, writing, and practice is centered on understanding of human actions in context, and in developing strategies of change based on this - where context is understood to be the result of dynamic interactions between culture, technology, economy, religion, gender and sexuality, and institutional practices.
