David Beyea is an Assistant Professor in the Communication Department at the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater.  Beyea’s research examines computer-mediated communication (CMC) and media effects. Beyea’s work seeks to identify how the cues found in traditional text-based CMC and high-fidelity media, such as virtual reality and video games, interact to affect our communication behavior in contemporary digital environments.

Beyea completed his Ph.D. in Communication at Michigan State University in 2019, at which point he joined the faculty at UW-Whitewater.
