I am an assistant professor in Child Development and Family Studies. I am primarily a qualitative researcher who studies fatherhood. I focus on cultural conceptions of fathers, both personal and media, and divorced fatherhood.

I am an assistant professor in Child Development and Family Studies. My master’s degree was in Family Mediation, and my Ph.D. is in Human Development and Family Studies (both from the University of Missouri). I am primarily a qualitative researcher who studies fatherhood. I focus on cultural conceptions of fathers, both personal and media, and divorced fatherhood. I use content-analysis, grounded theory, thematic analysis, narrative analysis, and phenomenology in my research.
