Asheley R. Landrum is an assistant professor of science communication in the College of Media & Communication at Texas Tech University and a media psychologist. Her research investigates how values and world-views influence people's selection and processing of science media and how these phenomena develop from childhood into adulthood. Currently, Asheley is working on two projects in collaboration with KQED San Francisco and funded by the National Science Foundation. These projects aim to engage younger adults with educational science media.
