M.A. Candidate

With a B.A. from Harvard in new media, computer science, economics and psychology, Benjamin Decker worked in corporate strategy at NBC before coming to Gallatin to pursue an interdisciplinary degree in interactive media studies. He is investigating the way that developing communication infrastructures enables both individuals and organizations to collaborate differently. His focus is on economics and literacy as well as digital media and communications. A course Decker took in the Steinhardt School on Web culture and Professor David Moore’s seminar at Gallatin on community contributed significantly to his thinking about his thesis. Gallatin, says Decker, allows him to “look at a question from multiple angles, which has been the critical element in allowing me to look at the similarities and differences in different contexts and use those to figure out the core mechanics of a problem.”
