Research Overview: My research takes place in the field of rhetoric, with a focus on computational approaches to rhetorical texts. I'm interested in how complex matters --- like climate change, medical information, or medical misinformation --- get communicated in and across large textual corpora. Methodologically, my research uses computational approaches to textual analysis, frequently by building or custom-tuning language models and other deep learning/neural network-enabled text processing infrastructures. More information can be found on ResearchGate, the digital trace data Lab, or my CV.
