I am currently completing a PhD in Professional & Technical Writing at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM). My primary research interests are 1) rhetoric of science, with an emphasis on public engagement and decision-making, and 2) technical communication, with an emphasis on writing technology, information design, and entrepreneurship. 

I also teach a range of undergraduate courses and am an affiliate researcher for the UWM School of Freshwater Science's Public Engagement and Science Communication Laboratory (formerly UWM Scientific and Medical Communication Laboratory).
