Background:

Dr. Dalisay currently conducts social scientific research pertaining to communication-related antecedents and outcomes of public attitudes, stereotypes, offline and online public engagement, opinion expression, and indicators of social capital—particularly, among residents of the Pacific Islands. Born in Quezon City, Philippines and raised in the village of (Kaiser) Dededo in the Western Pacific Island of Guam, he is an islander at heart, and tries to instill a positive island-style vibe among his students. He also tries to spend as much time as he can at the beach, and enjoying life with family and friends.

Research:

Communication effects; social capital; civic engagement; stereotypes; public opinion; Guam and Western Pacific
