I am interested in the influence of life difficulties such as illness, financial insecurity, and fearful attachment on responses to persuasive and informative messages, as well as narrative content. My research thus far has focused on barriers to message processing and persuasion in health communication and how similar barriers influence engagement with the story world. I intend to pursue a research program at the intersection of these two interests, investigating the extent to which narrative interventions can address enduring behavioral barriers to population health and welfare.
