Brief Bio: 

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Human and Community Development. I study the technology of adolescence and how participation with social media through play mediates young people's involvement with marginalization and resistance in both Western adolescence and in Western society.

My dissertation will be using qualitative methodologies to examine rural youth's -- particularly rural females' -- play, performance, and participation in social media as a form of resistance against social marginalization.
