I recently earned my Ph.D. in Environmental Psychology from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. My research interests focus on health, specifically health and social media, access to health care, and addressing health inequalities. I am also interested in research methodologies and am the co-founder of the Internet Research Team at the Graduate Center.
I am an experienced qualitative researcher and have worked on a variety of projects for government agencies including the New York State Department of Health and the New York City Department of Education, and organizations such as the New York Academy of Medicine, Mount Sinai Medical Center, the Dolan DNA Learning Center, the Mote Marine Laboratory, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
In addition to my applied work experience, I have held academic fellowships with the Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Program at the Graduate Center, the Writing Across the Curriculum Program at Brooklyn College, and Student Health Services Health Education Program at the Graduate Center.
I have also taught undergraduate courses in the Children’s Studies department at Brooklyn College and the Education department at Hunter College. Prior to graduate school, I worked as a journalist and community youth worker.
I currently live in Brooklyn, NY but I was raised in Maine, miss the trees, and visit as often as I can.
