The FrameWorks Institute

I have served as a research fellow for The FrameWorks Institute since 2012. FrameWorks is a progressive social science think tank based in Washington, DC that conducts research on how to better communicate with the public about issues of pressing social significance, "bridging" colloquial and expert understandings through analysis of metaphor, narrative, and cognitive framing.
As a scholar of American culture, I have worked on a wide variety of projects, with topics including immigration, child development, adolescent drug use, nuclear policy, farming, economically integrated neighborhoods, the "generation gap," safety in healthcare, and public health.
