Faith Delle is a doctoral student in the Department of Advertising + Public Relations. She is primarily interested in how individuals cognitively process and make meaning of mediated messages. Captivated by the power of storytelling, she is eager to investigate how stories are designed in terms of message content and story trajectories, as well as how emotion influences the persuasive impact of the story.
More specifically, her research explores grief, trauma, and loss from a media psychology perspective. Drawing from theory in social norms and narrative persuasion, she applies quantitative methods (e.g., eye-tracking, psychophysiology, real-time response measures) to better understand and predict behavior.
Before coming to MSU, Faith earned her M.S. in Professional Communication (2021) and B.S. in Psychology (2019) at Florida State University.
