Dr. Brann explores the integration of health, interpersonal, and gendered communication. Primary research interests focus on the study of ethical issues in health communication contexts and promotion of healthy lifestyle behaviors. Specifically, Dr. Brann seeks to understand communicative negotiations regarding women’s health issues, the many facets of patient confidentiality in health care communication, promotion of preventive screenings and physical activity, safety education, gender constructions, and family relationships. Theoretically, Dr. Brann researches communication at both the micro and macro levels. She studies how communication influences the aforementioned areas in relationships among individuals and with the social world. Methodologically, her research questions guide the specific data-gathering techniques employed and include interviews, focus groups, observations, and surveys.

I have explored this relationship among messages, perceptions, and behavior in a variety of context areas, including health discourse (specifically chronic disease management), intercultural communication (specifically the communicative construction of cultural perceptions and the role of media representations in shaping those perceptions), and conflict management (primarily in organizational settings). I teach a variety of face-to-face and online classes, ranging from COMM-G100 (the gateway course for COMM majors) to seminars in health communication and intercultural communication for graduate students. I am committed to service learning and integrate service learning opportunities into many of my classes. In addition, I am an advocate for the value of internationalizing curriculum and seek to embed global learning outcomes into my classes. School of Liberal Arts Outstanding Tenure-Track Faculty Award, 2017; Trustees' Teaching Awards, 2017, 2015, 2014, 2011, 2005, 2002; Visiting Scholar, Georg-August-Universität, Göttingen, Germany 2012; Erasmus Mundus Visiting Scholar, Euroculture MA Programme, 2015, 2013, 2011, 2010 In 2013, I was selected by the National Communication Association to be part of a 30-member team of communication faculty from around the country representing a cross-section of the discipline in terms of specialty, geography, and type of institution. The team was charged with defining learning outcomes for Communication majors. In other words, we were asked to define what a student graduating with a degree in Communication Studies should know and be able to do. After two years of regular meetings and collaboration, we were successful in spelling out learning outcomes for communication majors at the 2-year and 4-year levels. These Learning Outcomes in Communication (LOCs) are available on the NCA website (https://www.natcom.org/learning-outcomes-communication). I am now actively involved in disseminating the LOCs and promoting their implementation at the local level. I have published one co-authored book: Antón, M. & Goering E.M. (2015). Understanding patients’ voices: A multi-method approach to health discourse. Amsterdam, Netherlands: John Benjamins.

In brief, my interests are really three-fold. I've always been interested in individuals' behavioral motivations in a broader social context. In other words why do people do the things they do? This is in part due to my background in Psychology. As a Communication Studies scholar my area of focus is on interpersonal communication, in particular; day to day minutiae, ones' background and experiences with other, shaping factors such as major achievements & loss/disappointment; generally speaking I'm interested in people's relational lives. Last but certainly not least, I'm passionately invested and interested in the psychological and communicative well-being of LGBTQ community. As a member of the community and advocate I'm quite interested in issues related to minority statues in our culture including not just sexual minorities but racial minorities as well.
