Focus of Graduate Studies
Doctoral student focusing on intercultural communication, health communication, and conflict resolution.
My research centers on issues of intercultural and intergroup communication. My current research applies integrated and evolutionary theory to improving intergroup relations. Presently, I am second author in drafting a chapter for an upcoming textbook on Environmental Health Literacy, discussing the importance of culturally relevant messaging in risk assessment and communication. I have also done work with the Great Lakes Ojibwe tribe regarding the benefits of traditional dietary practices and I applied quantitative methodology to investigating relationships between culture and health choices as a MA student.
Teaching Interests and Experiences
Most recently I have developed online and face-to-face courses in intercultural communication, stressing the role of fundamental human cognition in intergroup conflicts. Previously, I taught nonverbal communication in an online format. I taught undergraduate public speaking for three years and middle-school English in Japan for three years. I have worked as a university writing center tutor for several years and a summer camp counselor and program director for over a decade.
