My research delves into rhetorical theory, public sphere theory, the rhetoric of public art, experience architecture, and ethical frameworks. When not teaching, I travel extensively for personal pleasure and academic research, and often volunteer to read literature to local nursing home residents. I remain a film aficionado, particularly of films emphasizing cultural diversity and social redemption.
