My undergraduate research at UWO included papers on representation of youth & youth culture; media distortion of homelessness: the Matrix of street living; vampires & those who slay them; the political economy of Canadian Media; Healthy Community strategies; nudity and victimization in crime/law television; characterization of violent women; local media; and radical alternative media. I focused my final year of study on social network theory (on & offline, strong & weak ties), computer mediated communication, and had the privilege to work with Dr. J. Burkell on various projects that explored perception of personal information – how privacy is understood and maintained by the public.
