Her research program is dedicated to interrogating participation and its relationship to space within organizational processes to advance theory, promote innovative methods, and seek transformation.. Her research focuses on the processes and implications of creating space for participation, particularly in the context of organizing for social change. For example, her dissertation project, funded through a Bilsland Dissertation Fellowship and a PROMISE Award from the College of Liberal Arts at Purdue, was a digital feminist participatory action research (D+FPAR) project examining the potentials and limitations of digital space for transnational feminist organizing. This engaged project was recognized with the 2018 W. Charles Redding Dissertation Award from the International Communication Association. Her work has been published in the Journal of Applied Communication Research, Journal of International and Intercultural Communication, Information, Communication & Society, Big Data & Society, Conflict Resolution Quarterly, Feminist Review, and Communication Education, among others, and in several edited books. Her solo-authored and co-authored work has received top paper awards at both the International Communication Association and National Communication Association conventions.
She has taught multiple classes as the primary instructor within communication (e.g., Organizational Communication, Small Group Communication, Communicating in the Global Workplace, and Public Speaking) and in a competitive teaching appointment with an interdisciplinary Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program. Additionally, she has demonstrated a strong commitment to service both to the discipline and to the university. She has reviewed articles for conferences and publication, volunteered with conference organizing and facilitation, and served as a graduate student representative for the NCA Feminist and Women’s Studies Division. Within the university setting, she has led and served on committees that support our students and institutions, including serving as president of the Purdue Communication Graduate Student Association and as a member of the Purdue Graduate Student Government (PGSG) Academic and Professional Development Committee.
