- Dr. Mott’s research investigates visualization as a tool to understand communication processes. His dissertation utilized visualization as a means to determine how well a video production student had been trained in their discipline. Most recently, he has started to research the eye-movement patterns of autistic children in relation to their consumption of television programs. The methodology will use eye-tracking software to quantify their zones of attention and visualization while watching a television program.
