Mass Communication, Media Psychology, Sports & Entertainment, Quantitative Methods
My program of research centers on social psychological processes and effects of the mass media.
Current research projects include: examining moral foundations, media exposure, and responses to immigration-related media content; exploring the relationships between sports audiences' fanship and their political affiliation; and a longitudinal analysis of social comparisons to mothers on MTV's Teen Mom.
Previously, I was a sports producer and training coordinator at several Cincinnati television stations. As a sports producer, I edited and produced nightly sports broadcasts and a weekly sports show. As a training coordinator, I taught television production workshops for the community and led several after school video clubs for local students.
