Welcome! Thanks for your interest in my research. My main interest is in romantic relationship development through the use of mobile technologies (so yes: Tinder). I’m also interested in social networking site use, emotional support provision online, and issues related to how race and gender influence interpersonal communication broadly.

I use both quantitative and qualitative methods in my research. This includes surveys, experimental designs, open-ended questionnaires, and in-depth, in-person interviews.
