Reed M. Reynolds, PhD, is a postdoctoral researcher in the School of Public Health at Georgia State University. He studies mechanisms of social inﬂuence in the context of health behavior, misinformation diffusion, and social networks. His research uses theories of limited cognitive capacity, attribution, and emotion to explain how communication shapes socially relevant beliefs, motivations, and behaviors. Reed also specializes in methodology including agent-based modeling, factor analysis, and physiological indicators of stress. One project Reed is currently leading investigates the link between mental health and social support among older adults. Reed has published articles in journals such as Psychology and Aging, Communication Methods and Measures, Communication Research, Health Communication, and Journal of Nonverbal Behavior.
