Research Spotlight

Picture of Faculty Fellow Bryan Dawson

This past Spring Dr. Bryan Dawson presented his research on the barriers to diversity in console video games with his students at the Southeastern Psychological Association Annual (SEPA) Conference. Their research explores how women and minorities experience harassment as players and the potential ways to counteract these negative behaviors. This research was supported in part by a CURCA mini-grant in the fall semester. Three students were able to present their projects for the first time at this regional conference, and are currently working with Dr. Dawson on an external grant to further the project. Dr. Dawson also serves as the CURCA Faculty Fellow leading workshops for faculty to write mini grants and FUSE grants, while advising the CURCA student ambassadors as they spread the word about the benefits of research throughout the university.
