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 the rhetoric of science. I'm presently pursuing lines of inquiry in the areas of genetic biotechnology, the constitution of expertise, and institutional argument.
This semester I am teaching COMM 301: Rhetorical Traditions and COMM 431: Communication Ethics. I will teach COMM 431 again in the spring, along with COMM 767: Rhetorical Criticism.
