I'm Dr. Juan-Carlos Durán. I'm a digital media scientist. I specialize in cyberpsychology and the study of human behavior in digital environments. I focus on digital technology’s ability to influence and persuade human perception and decision making. Among various subjects pertaining to human-digital interaction, I've written about the use of digital media to assist cognitive decline in older adults; the influence of narrative in digital environments and other topics.
Leadership. I'm a leader in start-up and corporate operations. I have broad business experience including leadership in media and communications; developing and improving management teams; improving operational and financial performance; and improving corporate growth strategies.
