Assistant Professor of Communication Studies
Her research interests have always varied widely, from studying social movements to kindergarten rituals, and presidential rhetoric to heroes (fictional and factual) as persuasive figures. Dr. Todd is interested in issues of identity and agency by observing strategies of symbolic interaction, and analyzing their larger social implications.
Her personal interests have also varied widely from earning her black belt in karate, to earning her EMT-B. Currently (when not working on research), she is studying game design, Buddhism, and photography.
