During my career at Virginia Tech, I was been able to refine my multimedia reporting skills and delve into new media issues in political science. On this page, you will find some examples of my academic work for the Virginia Tech departments of Communication and Political Science.
- “The Effect of Social Media and the Internet on Race, Age and Voter Turnout”: A research proposal examining the effects of new media on political participation.
- “Has the GOP Caught Up?: An Examination of Campaign Fundraising and Partisan Parity in the Social Media World”: A research proposal testing whether the Republican Party has caught up in the technological race with Democrats, who have been seen as ahead since the 2008 presidential election.
- “The Affordable Care Act: Constitutional or Unprecedented Expansion of Federal Power?”: An analysis paper on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act oral arguments in the Supreme Court for my judicial process class.
- “New Technology and its Impact on the Congressional Institution and Elections”: A literature review examining the effect technology has had on Congress.
