Emily Buehler’s research focuses on interpersonal communication processes in computer-mediated contexts. She is particularly interested in how the features and affordances of online communication channels shape perceptions and behaviors relevant to the process of supportive communication. Her current work investigates how perceived affordances impact the support-seeking attempts of individuals concealing stigmatized identities. Within that context, she is examining how perceptions of anonymity and visibility correspond with variation in the dimensions of messages used to get support for concealable stigmatized identities. She has taught undergraduate courses in areas such as nonverbal communication, business and professional communication, and privacy management. Emily currently teaches Effective Public Speaking (CAS100A) and discussion labs for Introduction to Computer-Mediated Communication (CAS283).
