Areas of interest

  • Writing research and pedagogy
  • Research writing in research education and development, especially doctoral writing

Description of research/teaching activities
My research and teaching interests focus on advanced literacies, rhetoric, writing, and discourse in academic, workplace, and public contexts especially as these contexts undergo change as a result of emerging digital technologies and globalization. I am particularly interested in what these changes mean for the study and teaching of rhetoric and writing in academe and beyond.
