College of Engineering
Fall 2017 I presented a series of workshops specifically designed for engineering students that focused on building your manuscripts, theses and dissertations.
Several students work with a consultant through a progression of sessions on a similar topic or document.
“People writing as part of a community of writers are more likely to learn faster about the conventions and challenges of writing, to support each other at times of blockage and to demystify the process of writing by sharing each others’ successes and failures."-- Sarah Moore (2003) "Writers' retreats for academics: exploring and increasing the motivation to write", Journal of Further and Higher Education, 27:3, 333-342.

Writing Course Support
The writing consultant helps faculty to integrate writing into a class, including writing units, assignment design, assessment, and providing feedback. Consultants will not, however, grade assignments on behalf of faculty.
Writing a Grant Proposal
The writing consultant assists faculty in writing a grant proposal.
Writing Workshops: Specifically Designed for Engineering Students
These sessions are generally presented in a class or organization and can be run both as stand-alone modules or as a series. If you'd like to organize a workshop for your class, your lab or your organization, shoot me an e-mail and we can talk turkey. We're currently in the process of developing a series of workshops on technical writing for engineers.
Group scholarship session
Group sessions are a great way to improve an ongoing project. Depending on the nature of the work, we'll set a timeline for the project in question and hammer it out over multiple sessions. Perfect for collaborative projects between class- or lab mates such as term papers and manuscripts, sessions function best with 2-5 members.
Disciplinary Consultant for CoE
I am a doctoral student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department with a specialization in cardiovascular engineering. My research areas include ventricular-arterial coupling, EM-induced genetic expression, countermeasures to microgravity and cardiovascular depression.
I am originally from Washington, but moved to Ames, Iowa where I completed my B.S. in Electrical Engineering at ISU. After graduation, I worked in Kansas developing human-machine interfaces and computer networks for manufacturing plants.
