Professional Interests, Experience, and Expertise

I am interested in relational maintenance and dissolution through communication technology. In particular I have studied how young adults engage use social media for things like: social support, an outlet for grief, engaging in political conversations, and impression management. I am excited to contribute to Relevate because I think it is important for researchers to connect with the community and share their knowledge in an accessible way. After all, why else are we doing this if not to help improve relationships?
