I am an assistant professor at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa in the Department of Communicology. My research focuses on message processing and its effects on perceptions of communication, social dynamics, and people’s subjective well-being. My published work includes both empirical articles and book chapters on communication accommodation theory, communication and aging, and communication in multilingual medical contexts. This site provides an overview of my research and teaching, as well as resources for those interested in learning more about these topics.
