My recent research has dealt with a range of topics related to themed entertainment, with an emphasis on the role played by audio-visual and networked media in the creation, administration and management of physical environments.  My dissertation examines themed representations of prehistoric life and evolution that serve as points of convergence for education and entertainment interests.  Additional research areas include art and art history, puppetry, and music.
