Brief Bio: 

I'm a fourth-year PhD student in the English Department at University of California, Davis, pursuing a designated emphasis in Writing, Rhetoric, and Composition Studies. My research explores the rhetoric of loss in texts interrogating the shift from print to digital culture. I'm determining the implications of these lingering loss narratives for 21st century readers and writers, scholars and students.
