Research

My research is centred on using the APPRAISAL theoretical framework to determine what types of interactions occur online around the hashtag #blacklivesmatter and whether those interactions vary over time and on different social media platforms.  I hope to learn more about the role of affect and emotion and they pertain to message diffusion.
