Current Research Interests: My work explores ecologies of care, examining how social support networks, institutions, and broader systems of power both structure and influence the ways people interact and communicate in the midst of difficult and stressful events and circumstances. These questions allow me to better understand how family, friends, and institutions can act to facilitate or impede people's well-being and influence their decision-making processes. My work focuses primarily on contexts of health, including chronic illness, disability, violence, and trauma.
