Current research interests:
Political communication and social justice, citizen voice in the media, nonprofit organizations. I am primarily concerned with how poverty and its many dehumanizing meanings have disenfranchised key publics through public discourse, what implications this behavior may have for both society and culture, and how large segments of the American public have come to understand poverty, its causes and consequences.
