I am a predominantly qualitative researcher of media studies, with intermediate skills in quantitative social science methods.
I have conducted ethnography, interviews, focus groups, discourse analysis, and surveys. I am using R for my statistical analyses.
I am interested in studying
the social & cultural implications of digital media and popular culture on children, families, and immigrant communities.
I am conducting research in both Asia and the US.
