Research Interest

My research focuses on organizational communications, focusing on women in leadership and the role gendered expectations communications play. I am also interested in interpersonal communication, specifically long-distance marital relationships.
My previous research focused on a narrative analysis of the Spanish Flu with its similarities to COVID-19.
