I'm a Ph.D. candidate in rhetoric and scientific and technical communication (RSTC) with a doctoral minor in natural resources science and management (NRSM). As a rhetorician, I study environmental communication in public and sociotechnical spheres. In addition, as a teacher of writing, I tend to emphasize that writing is a networked activity and a technology -- and that these realizations have profound meaning for ourselves and the communities in which we live and work. I try to make learning accessible and equitable through universal design for instruction, both in-person and online. I look forward to working with you!
