“I am honoured to join the Board of Directors at HRF especially at a time when digital technology is playing such a crucial role in all areas of our lives. As a media scholar I’m aware of the profound impact the changes in the entertainment and communications industry have on people’s behaviour and the methods the media use to interact with their audience. In such a fast-moving environment, it seems especially important to foster research and good practices regarding the essentials of engagement and the challenges we are facing in fully understanding what that engagement entails. I look forward to collaborating on designing a communication strategy to further the work and achievements of HRF.”
