Additionally, he pursued work on how comics and science fiction can be used as a vehicle for health information. At Harvard, his scholarly interests include understanding how social networks and social capital influence suicidality in college and university students. Additionally, how narrative and media have effects on health, and how they can be deployed to increase mental healths seeking behavior.
