My current research focuses on communication about race within critical interpersonal and family communication contexts. Specifically, I examine how people negotiate meanings about genetic ancestry tests through communication.
Aside from my scholarly work, I enjoy engaging in the arts. I am the former editor of Ruminate Magazine‘s online publication, The Waking, and I’ve read for Split Lip Magazine and The Common. In my free time, I enjoy writing poetry, learning to paint, and reading good books.
