Research Projects

As a communication scholar, I believe that examining communicative factors and their effects is essential for understanding people’s lives at the individual and community levels. In my research, I work to understand the role of communication in producing participatory citizens and in supporting community building. In particular, I am interested in media use and its influence on political and civic participation and community-building efforts during difficult times such as during natural disasters or periods of economic crisis.
