Research Interests

My current research spotlights the experiences and depictions of young mothers, the importance of emerging mixed-methodological techniques, and intersections between gender, education, and media in popular culture. My additional research projects use content analysis to examine depictions of social movement activists from 1970 to present and the Neoliberal discourse of millennial generation feminists.
