Hi, my name is Michael Braun. In 2013, I finished my Ph.D. in the Department of Communication Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. My studies focus on quantitative analysis of human communication. More specifically, I am interested in aging and media use, social media, technology adoption, and technology decision making. In my current position as a research specialist at the Children and Family Research Center, part of the School of Social Work at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, I help oversee child protective services and foster care systems.
Past work experience includes working in technical support at Epic Systems Corporation from 2006-2008 and campus-based marketing for Apple Inc. when I was an undergraduate.
