Dr. James Stanescu

Assistant Professor of Communication Studies

James StanescuDr. James Stanescu briefly worked as a staff member and part-time faculty member at Mercer University from 2011-2013. He then was lucky enough to become a full-time faculty member in 2017. Furthermore, he is married to a Double Bear (meaning his partner graduated from both Mercer undergrad and the School of Medicine). When he isn’t researching or teaching, he is probably with his family. And if he isn’t doing that, he is probably spending more time reading science fiction than he should.
