Jessica D. Moorman's research interests lie at the nexus of public health, cultural studies, and mass communication. Her undergraduate work in American Culture at the University of Michigan and graduate work in Public Health at Johns Hopkins University have given her an interdisciplinary foundation for her scholarly work. Professionally, Jessica has worked as an HIV prevention health educator; a program assistant for a school based program promoting healthy eating and exercise among middle school students; and a Bronx based high school sexual health educator. Most recently Jessica worked at the U of M School of Public Health as the project manager for a Ford Foundation-funded research study examining the structural and attitudinal factors influencing sexual vulnerability among Detroit Youth. As a Communication Studies doctoral student, she explores the ways that sexual vulnerabilty is manifest online. Right now she is working on a mixed methods project incorporating "netography", content analysis, and survey to better understand the working conditions of trans and biological women who primarily exchange sex online. In her personal time she enjoys riding bikes, gardening on her terrace, baking pies, and drinking Michigan beer.
