I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of English at North Dakota State University. I received my Ph.D. and M.A. in rhetoric and composition from Purdue University. My research interests include professional and technical writing, writing across the curriculum (WAC), and women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. My dissertation research involved analyzing how female engineering students rhetorically cultivate a professional identity as women and as engineers through coursework and professional development opportunities.
This fall, I am teaching an introduction to writing studies class as well as a user experience and usability course for undergraduate and graduate students. In the past, I have taught first-year composition in engineering-centered learning communities, and technical writing, professional writing, and healthcare writing courses.
