I joined the Department of Communication in Fall 2008, after completing my Ph.D. at the University of Southern California. I was excited about moving up north because I grew up in Montana. I received my B.A. from Carroll College (Helena, MT) and my M.A. from Wake Forest University.
My research focuses on rhetorical aspects of technology, with a focus on emerging technologies and identity in public culture. I am also interested in how digital media are reshaping classroom practices and communication pedagogy.
This fall, I will teach COMM 112: Understanding Media and Social Change and COMM 704: Qualitative Research Methods in Communication. I will be on family leave in the spring.
