ISTPP welcomes two new Research Fellows – Dr. Weihsueh Chiu and Dr. Johanna Dunaway.
Dr. Chiu is a professor in the Department of Veterinary Integrative Biosciences at Texas A&M University. His research expertise includes quantitative health risk assessment, dose-response assessment, and statistical modeling of environmental and biological systems. Dr. Chiu’s current interests focus on developing computational and statistical methods to transform data into knowledge to inform policies protecting public health from the effects of environmental chemicals.
Dr. Dunaway is an associate professor in the Department of Communication, College of Liberal Arts, at Texas A&M University. Her research examines the relationship between the structural and contextual features of media outlets and news content. Dr. Dunaway’s current research examines the impact of the changing contemporary media environment and information technology across individuals, groups, and local communities and the implications of this for news attention, engagement, and political polarization.
