Currently, I'm researching the effect of gender on recovery from natural disasters in developing countries and looking at alternative models of representative democracy. In the past, I've researched the politics behind disaster aid declarations, the effect of natural disasters on bankruptcy in the United States, and the role of the Protestant Work Ethic in shaping contemporary US society.
