Dr. Pamela Rutledge

Be honest. How often do you check social media sites throughout the day? How much do you now rely on carrying around a cell phone on a day to day basis? Do you ever stop to think about all the interaction we have with technology? Dr. Pamela Rutledge does just that. She is a media psychologist that studies the interaction of human experience and media technologies.

Dr. Rutledge received a BA from Pomona College in Studio Art, an MBA from the Drucker School of Business at Claremont Graduate University, and an MA and PhD in Media Psychology from Fielding Graduate University. She is currently the Director of the Media Psychology Resource Center and the co-found of A Think Lab, which is an organization that focuses on a synthesis of psychology, media and technology, neuroscience, culture, and creativity.
