Biography

I'm Assistant Professor of Health Communication at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I did an interdisciplinary PhD (young parents and health information) and postdoctoral fellowship (pediatric vaccine confidence) at the University of British Columbia. I study public health communication with youth, parents, and families on "difficult" topics such as vaccines and cannabis use. Current research focuses on: vaccination in pregnancy and child vaccines, cannabis use decisions in pregnancy and lactation, communicating with young parents, and non-nefarious deception in online support communities.
