In her own time: running, hiking, detective stories, home renovation, and exploring the trails, wineries and farms of the Finger Lakes with my husband
Current research project(s):  I completed a book project on gender and social media labor earlier this summer, so I’m in the early stages of work on several new studies/collaborations: a project exploring the relationship between cyber-misogyny and “women’s work,” an analysis of socially mediated self-presentation among female entrepreneurs, and an examination of the mythos of creative work circulating in the media.
What most excites you about Cornell: The opportunities for collaboration at Cornell seem unmatched; I’m looking forward to meeting faculty and scholars across the many departments, research centers, and institutes.
