I received my Ph.D. at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication in 2008, and joined NDSU's Department of Communication in the fall of that year. Prior to completing my Ph.D, I earned an M.A. in communication and a B.A. in communication and in English from the University of Southern California.
My research takes place in the field of rhetoric, with a focus on how science gets communicated to the public. I'm presently pursuing lines of inquiry in the areas of consumer-oriented genetic biotechnology, and the role of expertise in communicating science.
This fall, I am teaching COMM 301: Rhetorical Traditions and COMM 431: Communication Ethics. I will teach COMM 711: Communication Theory and COMM 767: Rhetorical Criticism in the spring.
