Research

My research always starts from my own lived experiences, whether this as a teacher, an administrator, or in my personal life. The experiences and phenomenon often intersect with digital writing spaces and technologies, which are also large parts of these aspects of my life, as well as my students. It is through looking at these these lived experiences through rhetorical and theoretical lenses that I am able to reflect more fully on the work I take up in all areas of my life.
