Research and professional interests
- Ageism. Specifically how experiences with ageism intersect with other forms of oppression (e.g., sexism, racism, transphobia) to affect health and well-being.
- Bystander behavior and sexual assault. I am interested in better understanding what factors affects how willing someone is to intervene to prevent a sexual assault from happening.
- Qualitative and quantitative research methods.
