English

My research and teaching focuses on community writing, technical communication, collaborative problem-solving, as well as developing heuristics and procedures to solve writing problems. 

My goal as an instructor is to help prepare students for confident and substantive participation in increasingly high stakes conversations in their communities, disciplines, and careers. My classes are designed to put students in situations representing "writing problems" where they must make critically informed, purposeful decisions about their projects using various genres, styles, heuristics, and technologies.

My research explores intersections between digital technologies, public discourses, and public community spaces as well as how students, community residents, and local institutions compose (with/in) these complex networks.
