I have a wide variety of research interests. Most of these research interests revolve around political communication and forensics. I am particularly interested in political activism and engagement. Currently, I am working on two projects. I am investigating consumer boycotts as a form of political activism. I want to understand why people engage in consumer boycotts. Additionally, I am working on an assessment of forensic activity. The speech and debate community continues to shrink due to a variety of reasons (funding, resources, coaching issues, etc.). Therefore, the forensic community must better understand the obstacles and pedagogical perspectives of the coaches that lead teams.
