Melissa McCormick is a recent Auburn University graduate pursuing her PhD in Communications. Although she is originally from Lakeland, Florida, her interests led her to Auburn to research academic competition and comparison among graduate students. She plans to continue her research into interpersonal and organizational communications a bit closer to home at the University of South Florida. Her other interests include perceptions of women in the political realm as well as self-presentation and weight discrimination in the workplace. She lets her passion and life experiences lead her to each new research topic and utilizes a mixed-methodological approach to gain better understanding into these experiences.
