My research centers around social movements, gender and women’s studies, and global studies. I am particularly interested in the intersection and interaction of different social movements and the ways that social movements adapt to changing political environments. My current research projects include: women's peace movements in the U.S. and Israel, a study on the G20 meeting in Pittsburgh and its impact on the local activist community and a project on the role of humor in protest.
