Introducing BCNM's New Graduate Adviser

BCNM is thrilled to announce that Coye Cheshire will serve as the Center’s Graduate Adviser this year.

Coye is an Associate Professor at the School of Information and a longtime member of the Berkeley Center for New Media Executive Committee. His work focuses on how various forms of exchange are produced and maintained on the Internet. In particular, he studies the role of trust in interpersonal online interactions, collective behavior and online collaboration, and the social incentives and motivations to contribute in online environments. His research lies at the heart of BCNM’s mission to both interrogate how new media forges innovative means of expression, and examine the risks and opportunities new media presents for influencing human interactions.

Coye is excited to strengthen his ties to BCNM’s program and our vibrant graduate student community through this position.
