Current Research

I currently work in two research projects funded by Forte. The first studies “sugar dating”, the disputed phenomenon where a "sugar baby" dates a "sugar daddy" in exchange for money and other material values. The second project addresses alternative knowledge claims about the risks of copper IUDs and HPV vaccinations, which are disseminated and discussed at the internet, especially in social media.
