Haley is a first-year MA student at the Media School. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Kansas State University and a Master of Fine Arts from Louisiana State University with concentrations in digital art. Her research focuses on developing immersive virtual reality environments based on real events to evoke empathy and expose viewers to the everyday life of marginalized people in America. Her VR documentary work has been shown in many art galleries around the U.S. While at IU, Haley hopes to expand her research using social science methods to develop virtual environments that will reduce racial bias, stereotypes and discrimination.
