Research Agenda

With Kathy Colville, I am working on a project examining health policy narratives. We are interested in how Medicaid beneficiaries socially construct themselves in public comments regarding a proposal to reform Medicaid in Kentucky.

In a separate study, I am examining President Trump's immigration policy narratives on Twitter.
