My work draws from the interdisciplinary disciplines of philosophy, media studies, and cultural theory to understand and address the social and structural context of health behavior, with particular emphasis on issues related to political economy, health disparities, and mental and behavioral health. In several current projects, I'm working to facilitate the translation of specialist knowledge to general audiences and have a longstanding interest in the general intellect and public education, especially creating awareness of the ecological context of public health and health promotion using new and digital media technology.
