Jonathan Dellinger is a graduate of UW-Milwaukee (PhD, Communication), where his studies centered on group dynamics, organizational communication, and intercultural communication. His research interests are related to human nature in new contexts, particularly pertaining to intergroup and intercultural conflict. He has collaborated on a range of projects relating to communication, culture, conflict, and health; including a recent foundational textbook in the emerging field of Environmental Health Literacy. His recent research examined the ameliorating effect of group cohesion in directing conflict towards beneficial ends in small groups. As a lecturer, he is looking forward to empowering UKY students with current and accurate knowledge to engage with pressing issues of the global community.
