Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Programs
Andrew R. Binder (Ph.D., 2010, University of Wisconsin-Madison) is an Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Programs in the Department of Communication at North Carolina State University. He conducts research on controversial science topics, including how information about those topics is transmitted through various communication channels and what impact that communication has on risk perception and public understanding of science. His research has been published in the journals Science Communication, Public Understanding of Science, Communication Research , and Journal of Health Communication, among others. Current projects include a national opinion survey on the use of reclaimed water in people's homes, a meta-analysis of the empirical relationship between sending sexually explicit text messages and sexual behaviors, and a systematic review of research on public opinion of genetic engineering.
