Welcome to my portfolio. I am a second-year doctoral student in the Department of English at Bowling Green State University with a specialization in Rhetoric and Writing where I am completing my final year of coursework and teach first-year writing classes with the General Studies Writing department at BGSU as part of my assistantship. I am also an assistant editor of Computers and Composition: An International Journal as well as web coordinator of Qualitative Research Network.
My research currently focuses on the digital ethics and privacy, digital rhetorics and memory, networked processes, and multimodality. I am interested in exploring what's left behind or sacrificed in the rush to "keep up" with the latest technological advancements such as ethical implications of using social networks or giving up privacy in the name of digital connectedness.
My teaching has focused on exploring various multimodal elements--text, sound, visual, and spatial modes--and how by combining certain modes communications become enhanced or nuanced. My purpose is to help prepare students to not only be consumers of digital rhetorics, but also to be producers of multimodal compositions for particular communicative needs.
My service focuses on community building within the university through connecting with faculty and peers about concerns relevant to institutional practices with a focus on integrating more multimodal work in writing programs.
