I am an Assistant Professor of Digital Writing & Rhetoric in the English Department at the University of Virginia.
Before coming to UVa, I taught composition courses at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) and Georgetown University. I earned my Ph.D. with a concentration in "Composition, Literacy, Pedagogy, and Rhetoric" from the University of Pittsburgh in 2013. My research and teaching interests include multimodal composition, sound studies, pedagogy, digital rhetoric, disability studies, sensory rhetorics, gender and women's studies, music, and pop culture. In addition to coediting a "Sonic Rhetorics" issue of Harlot, I have published scholarship in College English, Composition Studies, Currents in Electronic Literacy, Sounding Out!, and Provoke! Digital Sound Studies. I am currently working on my first book, which proposes an expansive approach to teaching with sound in the composition classroom.
