Welcome.              

Hi. My name is Matthew Craig and I'm a Ph.D. student at Kent State University's College of Communication & Information. My research focuses on Human-Machine Communication (HMC) and privacy management and disclosure. Specifically, I seek to understand how humans communicate identity and negotiate privacy when interacting with and through communicative AI and computer-mediated communication contexts.
