I am an Assistant Professor of Writing and Rhetoric at the University of Rhode Island. I teach courses in rhetoric, professional writing, and multi-modal composition. I am also an affiliated researcher with Michigan State University’s WIDE@MATRIX.

My research interests includes computational approaches to rhetorical analysis. I am currently leading a project that is developing an app that will automatically track and analyze facilitation strategies in online learning environments.
