My research focuses on the connection between identity and mediated communication. I am interested in the ways in which we come to understand ourselves, and our worlds, through our relationships with media texts and technologies. Specifically, my research has explored how media impacts gendered identities and our perceptions of the feminine. I graduated from Oberlin College with a B.A. in Women's Studies. I received my M.A. in American Studies (concentration in Women's Studies) from SUNY at Buffalo and my Ph.D. in Media, Culture and Communication from New York University.
