PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES

Dr. Alexis Johnson's research centers on how people make sense of their narratives surrounding trauma, difficulty, and marginalization in a variety of contexts including chronic illness, terminal illness, mental illness, disabilities, bereavement, and on mediated platforms. Specifically, her research seeks to understand effective modes of supportive communication within these lived experiences. Her specialty areas include interpersonal, family, health, and mediated communication. In addition, she studies autoethnography and the dark side of communication.
