My research interests are in the areas of promotional culture, media and cultural studies of health, qualitative research methods, and gender and performance. I'm the co-editor of The Routledge Companion to Advertising and Promotional Culture (Routledge, 2013), and my publications about consumer culture appear in Popular Communication, Feminist Media Studies, Journal of Consumer Culture, and International Journal of Cultural Studies. A collaborative project on American cheerleading has been published in Social Problems and Text & Performance Quarterly. My current research considers how health care is framed as a consumer issues, particularly in the United States in reform discourse.
